Malabar musings

The question of which came first — the chicken or the egg — is an unsolved one, however, ‘Biryani Pedia’ in SG Palya may well have the answer.

It’s a small place located in a corner that can only cater to around six tables at a time. The decor of the place draws inspiration from Kerala explaining its origin. 

It’s got a bit of everything you need to satisfy your craving. However, you might not find the same dish your friend had from his or her last visit. The menu changes on a daily basis, according to the day’s special.

The best way to start your meal is to order their ‘special tea’. It’s a spice mixed black tea that will soothe your palate. One sip of it will definitely leave you wanting for more. 

The day yours truly visited, there was an array of options to choose from in terms of ‘biryani’ and curries.

Staying true to its name, the ‘biryanis’ offered here are one-of-a-kind. There is a generous amount of ghee in the preparation that you can taste along with the special masalas in the ‘biryani’. The ‘vegetable biryani’ and ‘chicken biryani’ were both satisfying.

The chicken was well cooked and the masalas was well prepared and blended with the rice.

Some of you might find it spicy though. Don’t worry, there’s ‘raita’, chutney and lime pickle to accompany your dish.

As it’s a Kerala restaurant, it goes without saying that meat dishes are very popular here. It comes as stews and fried and roasted preparations. Each of them have their own flavour to it. It’s perfect with either ‘pathiri’, ‘chappati’ or ‘puttu’.

The ‘Pepper chicken’ is also highly recommended. That hint of pepper when you bite into the piece not only soothes your palate but also leaves your belly happy. 

Though the options for vegetarians are limited, the portions are plenty. If you’re a vegetarian, you can choose from options like ‘Vegetable Chettinad’, ‘Kadala curry’, ‘Green peas masala’ and ‘Vegetable stew’.

Complete your meal with either both tea or the sweet of the day.
‘Gulab jamun’ can be just the perfect way to end a delicious evening.

‘Biryani Pedia’ is located at 3rd Cross Road, Venkateshwara Layout, Suddagunte Palya.
