If you have been to any of our Outlets in Hyderabad or Bengaluru during the last fortnight, you would have noticed that the star of our menu at the moment is not the Biryani, but Kebabs. Rightly so, what an excellent selection our Chefs have selected for the Hot N Juicy Kebab Festival. They searched kitchens across India to bring our guests the finest Kebabs from across regions.
The Festival brought together 25 lip-smacking vegetarian and non-vegetarian Kebabs, of which 16 are new varieties. Guests have been enjoying this diverse and delectable spread. Here are five Kebabs that won hearts at the Festival:
1. Mutton Galouti Kebab: A classical Lucknowi minced lamb kebab flavoured with saffron, cashew, brown onions rolled as patty and shallow fried in ghee.
2. Zaffrani Murg Sarfiyaa: De-boned chicken thighs marinated with saffron,cardamom and cream cooked in tandoor.
3. Tulsi Machhi: Basil and ginger smeared fish chargrilled to perfection.
4. Subz aur Mungphalli Sheekh: Minced veggies & cashew skewered kebabs crusted with peanuts and cooked in a moderate live charcoal.
5. Gul Lazeez Kebab: Mashed arbi stuffed with cheese cigars, crusted with cracklings and deep fried.
We are also serving Kebab Platters that offer an assortment of these Kebabs. Do try these new varieties and more at the Hot N Juicy Kebab Festival organised at all our Outlets in Hyderabad and Bengaluru. Only until September 30.
Utter the name Paradise and the first thing that comes to mind is Biryani. However, guests who have ordered other things on our menu and find them equally great. They are pleasantly surprised at many of our hidden gems and soon the word spreads. That’s how our Kebabs acquired a large pool of admirers in Hyderabad and Bengaluru. One event though completely launched them into the mainstream world of Paradise cuisine.
Last year around this time of the year, we organised the Mazedar Kebab Festival at select Restaurants and it became an instant hit. Guests discovered classics that have been there on our menu for long and also several new varieties. Some varieties that were intended only for the Festival became permanent fixtures on our menu – the Tulsi Murg Kebab for example.
Buoyed by this success, we are back with the 2nd edition titled Hot N Juicy Kebab Festival. This time it is not only bigger but also better. Organised in our Hyderabad and Bengaluru Restaurants, the event will bring together 25 lip-smacking varieties. Our Chefs scoured kitchens across the country to bring you 16 new varieties that represent the best in Indian cuisine.
To help you enjoy a little of everything, we have also designed 3 Platters:Mixed Festival Platter (5 varieties of Chicken, Lamb and Fish Kebabs), Chicken Kebab Platter (5 varieties of Chicken Kebabs) and All Veggies Platter (5 varieties of Vegetarian Kebabs). These Platters offer a great opportunity to sample different varieties we are serving during this Festival.

Well, the verdict is in. The Mazedar Kebab Festival was a resounding success. Thousands and thousands of guests enjoyed over 25 varieties of Kebabs and discovered several new favourites among them. In a Restaurant where Biryani dominates everything, this festival allowed us to shift the conversation to other equally marvellous dishes on the menu.
No matter how good our Biryani is, for Paradise to remain attractive to guests, we need to continuously bring variety. This Festival gave our Chefs the opportunity to scour the kitchens of India to uncover several delicious Kebabs and add them to our menu. Our diligent preparation and hard work in conducting this festival truly paid off.
Of course, the success could not have been possible without the endless encouragement of guests. Across Restaurants/Takeaways, they skipped their usual favourites to try out the new dishes. They also gave us generous feedback on which dishes are great and which ones need improvement. On the whole, the new Kebabs won the hearts of our guests.
At Paradise, every dish on our menu gets the same passionate attention from our Chefs that our Biryani gets.

The Festival took off really well with guests instantly admiring the breath-taking diversity of the spread.

Food-wise, the name Hyderabad invokes many images. The irresistible Biryani, the sublime Haleem, and the piping hot Irani Chai. While all these are definitely representative of the city’s astonishing culinary variety, some specialities have almost slipped from the public mind, drowned in the buzz of more popular dishes like the Biryani.
These include such marvels as Paaya, Marag, Pathar-ka-Gosht and Kebabs – especially the Kebabs. Every dish bears the imprint of its travel and it is clearly evident in the case of Kebabs. Originating as a Persian dish in the Middle East, Kebabs grew in popularity and variety, taking inspiration from culinary styles as diverse as the Mediterranean and Indian.
What Hyderabadi Chefs did with them is quite a story. Building on centuries of Mughlai tradition, they innovated boldly by using indigenous South Indian spices. The classics they created that continue to delight people. Hyderabadi Kebabs combine the best of both worlds – the smoky flavour of skewered meat with the zesty blast of Indian spices.
Beginning August 15,2015 Paradise will shine the spotlight on Kebabs with the Mazedar Kebab Festival across our Restaurants and Takeaways in Hyderabad and Bengaluru. As many of you know, our Kebabs are as special as our Biryani, made with great passion by Chefs dedicated to their art. This is a great opportunity to enjoy 25 Kebab varieties, that include both timeless classics and several new varieties. Stay posted for more.
