Print PDF

Ahead of the Ramzan festival and to cash it on the taste buds of the gourmet lovers, Zaiqa-e-Hyderabad launched its first restaurant in the heart of the city at Banjara Hills.  Zaiqa-e-Hyderabad is from the same team which organises Zaiqa-e-Ramzan at Mehdipatnam every year. Zaiqa-e-Hyderabad is a multi-format restaurant serving authentic Hyderabadi cuisine, launched by the Food Krafters & Services (FKS). Taking off from the Urdu word ‘Zaiqa’, which means flavour, the restaurant is already a hit with people who love to savour the true Hyderabadi cuisines. Khalil Ahmed, Managing Director of FKS said that the restaurant, Zaiqa-e-Hyderabad is about capturing the essence of Hyderabad - its unique traits, a paramount love of food, and the proud flaunting of the Nizami heritage. “Centuries-old recipes have been curated by a team of award-winning Chefs, who use the most authentic ingredients to prepare the best of Hyderabad’s culinary treats,” the MD says. Ahmed states that this is the first Zaiqa-e-Hyderabad restaurant in the city, and plans are on to set up more shortly. He adds that dinners can feast on Kebabs, Biryani, Gravies, and Desserts that represent the true flavours of Hyderabad. The culinary team which works under the leadership of Chef Pradeep Khosla churns of the various delicacies, such as the Marag, Haleem, Sona Zaffrani Tikka, various kinds of Biryani and Kheema Matar to name a few. The chef proudly says that exclusive preparations like Marag, Haleem, and Lukhmi will be served along with favourites like Nizami Handi, Kacchi Yakhni Biryani, Chicken Dum Biryani, and Qubani ka Meetha. Some of the other cuisines include Paneer Tikka, Osmani Jhinga, Mutton Do Pyasa, Kheema Matar, Asaf Jahi Gosht Khorma, Lagan Ka Murgh, Dum Ka Murgh, Bagara Baigan, Dum Ka Paneer, Tamatari Paneer, Subz Biryani and many others. “Zaiqa-e-Hyderabad will be plating up a meal that is sure to send one’s taste buds on a journey to the days of the Nizams,” he says. The restaurant also offers a wide variety of choices. One can have a five course meal or have a one or two items and save for the next visit. One can begin the meal with a soup of Marag, which is lamb, almonds, pistachios and saffron which come together wonderfully in this soup that was exclusively enjoyed by the royalty.  Popular among most non-vegetarian eaters is the Haleem. This is a delicacy that is especially made from succulent meat, pounded wheat, aromatic ghee and spices, is considered an art. The restaurant calls it a delivery of a masterpiece.  Another popular preparation with vegetarians and non-vegetarians is the Lukhmi. In this preparation, vegetables or minced lamb, either option of this is stuffed fried pastry, which is mouthwatering delicacy. Others on the menu include Tali Hui Machli, a scrumptious deep fried fillet of fish marinated in authentic Hyderabadi spices. Another dish is the Shikampur, a true Nizami dish, pounded meat patties with a wholesome filling of onions, yoghurt and green chillies. If one loves the chicken varieties, there is Sona Zafrani Tikka. Enjoy the Zafrani goodness of the chicken, slow-cooked over charcoal, or try out the Murgh Malai Kebab, the cream, cheese and spices marinated kebab is a favourite of gourmet lovers. Also there is the regular Chicken 65, tender pieces of chicken tossed in fragrant curry leaves and select spices. Love eating the Kacchi Yakhni Biryani, tender and succulent pieces of mutton cooked ‘dum’ style with fragrant Basmati rice and spices, is a Biryani specialty here. Not to forget the regular Biryanis. If you have a sweet tooth, don’t miss out the Qubani Ka Meetha, a favourite at Hyderabadi weddings and special get-togethers. “This dessert is the beautiful confluence of apricots and sugar,” says the chef.
