The Authentic Taste of Andhra at Nandhana Palace
With 13 restaurants in their bounty, Nandhana Palace brings home the flavors of Andhra. Started with the sole purpose of familiarizing people with Andhra food, they have been quite successful with it. We tried their outlet in Bannerghatta Road which is right opposite to Gopalan Mall. The flagship restaurant is called ‘Banana Leaf’ which symbolizes the tradition of food served here. The ambiance is decent with sofa as well as chair seating.
We went here to try some authentic Andhra dishes, something that is unique here. Therefore, we kicked off with the Drumstick Soup. Now here is something that I have never tried before and guess what – it was amazing. All the pulp from the drumsticks is extracted to form a thick soup, the taste was excellent. Next we had the Carrot 65. Having stayed in Hyderabad for years I have come across many ‘65’ variety dishes but this one was very special. The marination was done perfectly and the dish was served with lots of garlic and cashew on top! Don’t miss it! The Babycorn Pudina Dry was served next. With a subtle flavor of mint this is a perfect dish for people who stay away from spicy food. The taste of authentic flavors of Andhra will mesmerize you here.
Nandhana Palace recently introduced a variety of Andhra Biryani’s to attract the youngsters, Paneer Biryani being one of them. The dish had two layers, a biryani layer and a paneer curry on top. The combination of vegetarian biryani with Paneer curry was delicious. These Biryani’s are personalized as well. And lastly, we had the Nellor Biryani which comes from the Nellor region of Andhra. This is a mild cinnamon flavored biryani with loads of vegetables.
Nandhana Palace turned out to be an excellent surprise with the authentic Andhra dishes and biryani’s to die for. The Thali’s here are brilliant too and if you haven’t had Andhra food before, you are surely missing something. The starters, Andhra meals and Biryanis are not to be missed!
