As India’s doors opened to the Moghul Empire, the magical world of Moghlai cuisine was introduced. From here began the saga of the deliciously flavored saffron colored rice cooked with meats: The Biryani.
Biryani originates from the Persian word ‘Biryan” meaning fried actually implying pressure fried. Lucky’s, situated at a busy crossroad (corner of three lamps as it was known in the olden days) of suburban Bandra, Mumbai. Lucky’s Biryani has become quite a household name since its inception way back on Friday 9th September 1938 started by Sayed Ali Akbarul Huseini.
When it opened doors in Dubai, there was quite a stir as people rushed to have their famous Biryani.
Today, I had the chance to try their delicious food and it transported me back to Mumbai. I don’t know about you but a good veg biryani genuinely excites me! And i don’t like them at too many places. What I had:
- Veg Biryani – Marvelous! A definite try as the basmati was cooked well and the vegetable masala below was flavourful and had all the right spices. Definitely one of the best biryani’s I have ever had.
- Paneer Butter Masala – Thick, rich and creamy gravy. Just how you would like an Indian gravy.
- Breads – Soft and done well. They were easy to eat even though it was delivered home.
- Chilly Garlic Noodles and Manchurian – Like any place serving Indian Chinese, these were good and will satisfy your cravings for Indo Chinese.
What I loved most was the fact that I was supposed to go for a review there today however I couldn’t make it and hence I had it delivered and even though there was a bit of confusion, everything was smoothly sorted by the management over the phone. Appreciate excellent service!
For all those craving a good biryani, this one’s for you!
