K.R.Hotel - Beef Biriyani, Vaniyambadi

I would definitely call that Sunday a lucky one. It was raining biriyani since morning. Witnessing the cooking of mutton biriyani. Followed up by naatu kozhi biriyani. And some more biriyani to add to the list. This time it was beef. I simply love the feeling when the smell of biriyani wafts around me, engulfing me, making me float like a feather. I think biriyani is my weed :P How lucky I should be to witness another such moment, when the hot hot beef biriyani dheksa is opened up and loads and loads of succulent, tender beef being piled up on one side of the dheksa. K.R. Hotel in Vaniyambadi sells only beef biriyani as early as 8 am. They cook in smaller batches (25-30kgs at a time)  so that they can serve fresh & hot biriyani to their customers. When we went, it was the second batch of biriyani. Priced at Rs.45 for 1/4 plate (kushka is priced at Rs.35), this was one of the best beef biriyanis I've had. Beef was as juicy as it can get and the kushka was medium spicy with nil irritants. Sliced raw onions were served as accompaniment.

Naattu Kozhi Biriyani @ Mustak Hotel, Vaniyambadi

After witnessing the making of biriyani right from the beginning and also gulping a small portion of it, we headed to Mushtaq hotel in Vaniyambadi to taste their Naattu Kozhi Biriyani. Available only on Wednesdays and Sundays. They start serving as early as 7 am and they get over by 10-10.30 am. We could see people waiting with thooku chattis :P to get their share. Kushka priced at Rs.70 & Biriyani priced at Rs.170, they were literally flying out of the deksa.

Aromatic, medium spicy,  nil irritant biriyani with two chunks of meat (one being leg piece). Looking at the size of the leg piece, it must  be rooster. No accompaniments. Meat was well cooked and was pretty soft too. We weren't hungry and we just wanted to taste the biriyani. But the portion for a normal eater would be less. Also I felt the biriyani to be greasy. I could feel a thick layer of fat while washing hands. On Mondays & Thursdays they serve Mutton biriyani.





If you are visiting Vaniyambadi for the first time, do try them out. I won't be interested to make another visit to this place.
