Last chance to relish our Zafrani Biryani

Paradise Biryani has been the world’s favourite Biryani for decades now. Yet, guests have been demanding variety. Over the last few months, we have been working on offering new Biryani varieties to guests, in addition to our legendary Hyderabadi Biryani. On February 1, 2017, we launched the Zafrani Biryani Festival which introduced the most royal of Biryanis – the Zafrani Biryani. Guests instantly loved this courtly food of Nizams.

We thank you for making the festival a huge success. Both variants, the Zafrani Chicken Biryani and the Zafrani Mutton Biryani, were a hit with all of you—and to our great joy, we have seen you relish these more than once. For those of you who haven’t feasted on this most royal of all Biryanis, we request you to hurry up. You only have a few days left to savour the joys and flavours of the Zafrani Biryani, for the Festival ends on March 31, 2017.

As you count down to the end of the financial year, invest some time to relish the exotic taste and the mouth-watering aroma of the Zafrani Biryani. It is made from pure saffron following the traditional recipe. The taste and texture are pleasantly different from our regular Biryani. A favourite of the Nizams and their guests, this wonderful dish was lost to the mists of time, until we decided to serve it to guests.

This was the first time Zafrani Biryani was served at Paradise and some of you have already made it your new favourite. We will be back next year with a new edition of the Festival, but before it ends, visit our Food Courts and have the Zafrani Biryani once more. Also, watch out for new varieties of Biryani and Kebabs that we will launch in the coming months to make your trips to Paradise memorable. See you at a Paradise Outlet this week.

Instant gratification has a new address!

Psst! Here’s some inside information about the Paradise of Biryani lovers! If you are in Bengaluru, you will definitely benefit from it. You can thank us later.

Well, what you are going to read next is the latest development at our New BEL Road Outlet. Yes, the one with the amazing Dine-in Restaurant on the First Floor where you must have had your favourite Paradise Biryani umpteen times.

Sometimes, when the question is of hunger and the answer is the Paradise Biryani, it’s hard to tolerate someone coming between you and your favourite food, not even the waiter who serves you. And, the delay in finding a table, ordering your food, and waiting for it to be served could be very trying. We understand all this and we have redesigned the Ground Floor of the New BEL Road Outlet and turned it into a self-service restaurant – our first anywhere.

All you have to do now is order your food and pick it up it in minutes. Find a seat and savour the joy of eating great food – uninterrupted. What’s more, when you eat at the self-service restaurant, you save money too. The prices of the various dishes are lower compared to the Dine-in Restaurant upstairs. You know what else is different when you visit it – all secrets should not be given away at once!

For now, all you need to know is that it looks quite different from a conventional restaurant, with modern and comfortable interiors. To satisfy your curiosity and your hunger, visit this latest addition to our family, the brand new self-service restaurant, the first of its kind for us at Paradise, on the New BEL Road. It opened on March 9, 2017 and will be running from 11 AM to 11 PM everyday. It’s your fastest route to your favourite meal. Do visit us soon!

Take hunger away, and bring home some Paradise!

Hunger pangs can strike at any time. When you come back home late at night after a long day at work, when you and your family return from out of town after hours of travelling, when you are out on the road buying things for your household, or when it is your usual lunch or dinner time. And when you are hungry, you need proper food – snacks or a packet of chips just don’t make the cut.

As your stomach growls, reminding you of the extent of your hunger, and your brain starts conjuring images of unlimited buffet spreads making your mouth water, all you want is to eat something tasty, something that qualifies as a proper meal, something that is served hot, and most importantly, something that you like to eat – and you want it right now! And if that something is a thing that you love to eat, like the food at Paradise…

Paradise is in the business of feeding people great food and that is why all our Outlets stay open till 11 pm so that our guests do not go hungry. And for those who are pressed for time, we offer a variety of options in our Delivery menu. So if you cannot take time out to cook a meal or eat out, well there’s a Paradise Takeaway near you!

Whether it is food for two or twenty, you can get freshly prepared food packed with special attention given to hygiene. The packed food stays warm even after hours and does not get spoilt or lose any of its taste or flavour. But you will definitely be spoilt for choice when you look at all the options in our delivery menu! There is your favourite biryani and all its variants, in all its combos and different sizes. Then you have our Kebabs; there are Indian vegetarian specialties and breads too. Here is a sweet surprise for you, Double ka Meetha and Qubani ka Meetha are in there too!

Biryani versus Biryani: The new favourite!

…and in a matter of days, the famous Paradise Biryani of old has got stiff competition and the previously enthusiastic takers are suddenly wavering. Now you might ask: “Did we think we would see this day? Who is this new player?” Well, yes, that day has arrived and the good thing for food lovers is that the competition is from within – from the Zafrani Biryani, launched by Paradise itself, which has taken the taste buds by storm!

The Zafrani Biryani Festival which began on February 1 has been a huge success. Its greatest feat has been making Zafrani Biryani the new favourite for Biryani lovers! Guests visiting Paradise Outlets in Bengaluru, Vizag, Chennai, and Hyderabad have all loved the exotic taste and the irresistible aroma of the Zafrani Biryani. Both variants of Zafrani Biryani, the Zafrani Chicken Biryani and the Zafrani Mutton Biryani, have become an instant hit.

The Zafrani Biryani Festival can easily qualify as a festival for all your senses: feast your eyes on the saffron-hued Biryani; breathe in the unique and heady scent of saffron; hear the sounds of your own delight; taste the flavour enhanced by the addition of saffron that makes this a majestic Biryani; feel the different textures in your mouth, the grains of the Basmati rice, the tender meat, the grainy and thick Salan and the soothing Raita.

If you have not allowed yourself to savour this most delicious of Biryanis yet, visit your nearest Paradise Outlet soon. The Zafrani Biryani Festival is going to continue only till 31st March, and it would break our hearts if you are not a part of it. Share the joy and the flavours with friends and family, for great food is enjoyed better with company.

And now for something sweet!

To bring a lunch or dinner to a fitting end, you have to eat a Dessert. For the uninitiated, the often-heard polite inquiry “do you have something sweet” at the end of a meal, may not always yield a Dessert. You might just end up with a candy or one of those extra sweet chocolate bars with more sugar and less chocolate. And the truth of the matter is, though they are sweet, they are not what you would call a Dessert!

dessert crop1When one thinks of Desserts, one does not think of “something sweet”. Rather, one thinks of a special preparation that offers a unique flavour and texture. Depending upon one’s appetite, the season, the weather and of course, one’s desire, one decides what Dessert to have. Once again, the availability of choice is what makes ordering a Dessert at the end of a meal such a pleasurable experience.

Two of the most delicious Desserts that Paradise offers are Double-ka-Meeta and Qubani-ka-Meeta. Qubani-ka-Meeta is an authentic Hyderbadi dessert and is made from puréed Qubani (dried apricots) and cream. Its unique texture comes from the roasted apricot kernels which are ground and then added. It is the perfect way to soothe your tongue and lips after eating all the spices in those mouth-watering Kebabs and Biryani. On a particularly hot day, you could even request for a scoop of ice-cream to be served alongside your Qubani-ka-Meeta and head for Dessert heaven!

qubani-ka-meetha_finalDouble-ka-Meeta, though a very popular Hyderabadi Dessert, owes its existence to that humble loaf of bread, a product of the western baking tradition. In fact, the name comes from the name of a type of bread popular in Hyderabad: double roti. This dessert truly represents the spirit of assimilation of Hyderabadi cuisine, and of the cuisine of our country at large. As a tribute to that spirit and as an acknowledgement to your sweet tooth, you must have the Double ka Meetha!

If you are in the mood for the seasonal Meeta, then order the Gajar-ka-Halwa, made from carrots and mawa/khoya, and served piping hot! Aah, the delight of having it one spoon at a time, blowing air on each spoonful and seeing the steam dispersed. This, ladies and gentlemen, is a fitting end to a meal! To end your meal in this fashion and to enjoy these delightful Desserts, step into your nearest Paradise outlet in Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, or Vizag.

A majestic Biryani

“Zafrani” – Just saying the word produces a rapture, its melody begins to conjure images and long lost memories. “Zafrani” – how enticing that sounds! A word that sounds like a great desire uttered on a sigh…

zafrani-web-popupZafrani, comes from Zafran, which most of you know as Kesar or Saffron, the dearest of the ingredients, that can only be found in some kitchens, not all. A secret and exotic ingredient that travelled a long, long distance, across national borders, to make its way through the Nizam’s court a few centuries ago to finally reside in the Nizami kitchen. A secret ingredient that not only transformed the defining dish of the Nizami cuisine but also transformed anyone who at the time had the privilege to relish the most majestic of Biryanis, the Zafrani Biryani.

We at Paradise thought that it is time all Biryani lovers experienced it. Paradise Biryani has been the world’s favourite Biryani for decades now. But, we are sure that the moment you get the first taste of our Zafrani Biryani, it will become your new favourite! It is a Hyderabadi delicacy and the legacy of the Nizams who ruled the city. And from February 1, Paradise will serve it to all the Biryani lovers at all our outlets in Hyderabad,Bengaluru,Chennai and Visakhapatnam.It is no longer reserved for a select few, but to anyone who is looking to taste a delightful variety lost to the mists of time.

We promise you that you will relish this premium Biryani served in two variants: Zafrani Chicken Biryani and Zafrani Mutton Biryani.
