They have built a reputation over time as India’s best Biriyani servers. Thalappakatti Biriyani Hotel can be traced back to 1957. The term “Thalapakatti” has been derived from “Thalapa”(a traditional headdress). Mr. Naidu, who wore the thalapa every day for work got this nickname “Thalapakatti Naidu”. Everyone started to call his hotel ‘Thalapakatti’s Hotel’. Eventually, the crowd started to come in numbers and the rest is history. Even Mr. Naidu himself wouldn’t have expected that his recipe will be one of the highly sought out biriyanis around the world.

Right from the start, Mr. Naidu was very careful about his recipe. He always emphasized on taste and ensured that the Biriyani made at his hotel was both delicious and unique. The amazing mix of few masala products, rice, meat, and the magic of Mr. Naidu’s hands made India’s most famous Biriyani. Thalapakatti Biriyani got this mouthwatering taste only because of the carefully addressed recipe of Mr. Naidu. Even though this story dates back to more than 50 years, the recipe has been passed from one generation to another ensuring the taste remains unchanged

Thalapakatti special mutton Biriyani will only cost you around $5. This dish is served with the sides of onion raita and gravy. Veering off from the usual basmati, this Dindigul biriyani is made with seeraga samba which is known to be low on calories. The most important fact is that every grain of masala in the Biriyani is homemade. The mutton which is cooked perfectly in every layer adds the final color and the taste to the dish. From what we gathered, lemon and curd play a huge role in pulling off these flavors, and so does pepper, giving that full-on zesty smack on your palate.

If you are a real food lover who wants to taste a real Indian authentic dish we recommend trying this and you will not get disappointed. In fact, you will make it a food habit to try this Biriyani whenever you are near one of these restaurants.
