Well, if not always :), definitely a must have thing 🙂
3 years back, first time as I step in the royal city of Hyderabad, one thing I definitely knew, is to explore the culinary extravaganza, the royal gastronomy of the place.
From then, 3 years now, May 2017: –
I get the invite for experiencing ‘Kakatiya Kirraak Brunch’, the splendid brunch
which embraces the spirit and taste that the culinary culture of Hyderabad have been
offering over the years.
ITC Kakatiya, the Hyderabad chapter for the renowned ITC hotels and known for being the epitome of luxury has come up with the most innovative yet so grounded concept for their Sunday brunch at the Deccan Pavillion.
The Kakatiya Kirraak Brunch – Finely curated by Chef Paul Noronha and Chef Jamal.
Chef Jamal, who hails from Hyderabad, mentions “Kirraak” means ‘absolutely awesome’/’outstanding’. This is what both the chefs have to say about this exclusive Sunday brunch:
It is said that, in order to understand the people, place and their culture, the best way is to understand their food.

Featuring a gamut of popular delectables both from the streets of Hyderabad as well as from the royal kitchens, the menu for this brunch has been designed, keeping in mind the brilliance of Hyderabadi flavours, a perfect blend of street food and royal essence.
Hyderabadi cuisine, also known as Deccani cuisine is the illustration of various flavours, spices, and cooking techniques. It starts from simplest form of snacks like onion samosas to assorted bread to gosht biryani to brilliant meat delicacies to desserts like khubani ka meetha.
Hyderabadi cuisine is the fine balance of exquisite Nizami flavours and the amalgamation of Arabic, Persian and the Turkish influences. It is beyond the regular fame of haleem and Hyderabadi biryani. The flavours of each delicacy are subtle yet distinctive.
Some of the resplendent Hyderabadi dishes were Sheekh Kebab, Gosht Biryani, Paya Shorba, Gosht ka Marag, Shahi Tukra, Khubani Ka Meetha, which is simply a proportion of the elaborate spread. They had assorted bread to go with the curries. To start or to end with, they have Irani chai with Onion Samosa, Dum ka Roat and much more. They have multiple live counters for a variety of kebabs with distinctly palatable flavours exclusively for fish, chicken, meat and cottage cheese. The other favorites are Bheja Fry and Gurda Kapura. The lavish affair of the culinary essence of traditional Hyderabadi cuisine has every element of an exquisite taste buds of a food lover; it has comfort, it is rich in flavours, it has the delicacy of composition, it is royal!
