People didn’t just stumble on the recipe for an authentic Hyderabadi Biryani. Like all popular dishes, it evolved through the centuries from its original Persian variety to admit influences from diverse cuisines – the cuisine of Andhra Pradesh in particular.What began, during the heyday of the Nizam Empire, as a nutritious food to feed soldiers soon entered the opulent kitchens of Nawabs where several exotic spices were tossed in to elevate its taste. In the royal court of Nizam, it achieved gourmet status becoming the dish of choice for several distinguished elite.
The fact that ordinary soldiers and royal Nawabs alike admired it shows that it is a true people’s food. It also explains why even today so many people – rich, poor and everyone in between – enjoy it. Just about everyone loves it. However, it would have remained an exotic food relished by a narrow group of connoisseurs had it not been for restaurants like Paradise which brought it back from royal kitchens into the larger society so that everyone can have it.
Starting in mid 1950s, we made sure this jewel in the culinary crown of Nizam Nawabs is available to all.

It is a classy food that commands a great following from people of all classes – a true leveller that goes on to show that when it comes to enjoying the nicer things in life, we are all the same.
