Hyderabadi cuisine takes pride of place in Southern or South Central India. I suspect mostly that it is because of its jovial people who simply make eating an art form.



Step By Step Method

  • Smear the pieces of meat with ginger-garlic paste. Keep them to marinate for an hour.

    In the meanwhile, fry the sliced onions in a heated pan on low flame till light brown. Let the onions cool down and crush them.
