    This one's for all us hyderabadis on IGT :rock:

    1. Your address reads as 23-404-32/67A-43 (New MCH number 56-678/4A/B-22), while you actually live in the second house beside ZamZam cafe in lane behind Anand Theatre on SP Road.

    2. You end up buying only a Salwar kameez, whether it is a theatre workshop, food mela, consumer expo, designer jewellery show, science show or an automobile convention.

    3. Your street has at least one Roadside Mobile Hotel that serves Chinese delicacies such as : "Vegetable soft needles", "NavRotten Kurma", "Chicken Manchurea"

    4. Your answer is 'Seeedha Chale Jao' when somebody asks you for directions, whether it is to Malakpet, Masab Tank, Malkajgiri or Moosapet.

    5. You come across tailors sporting the board : "Immidiot delivery in two days onli".

    6. You can speak Hindirdu, hyderabadi hinglish, except Telugu, FLUENTLY.

    7. You ask the waiter to get you some 'Chatney Lao'even if you are sitting at a lavish continental banquet dinner with exotic Chinese, Mexican, Italian and Lebanese cuisines.

    8. You order for a 'CHAI" just after having had a Caramel custard.

    Its normally prepared during Ramzaan. As merqury said its a paste of chicken and wheat. Heard somewhere that it takes almost a day for the preparation. But the end result is mind blowing. Had it couple of times and it was really delicious.

    And do I have to say anything about "Hyderabadi Biryani"? If you haven't tasted it, you have missed something.
  12. tejas

    tejas ..........

    Yeah, usually during the month of Ramzaan, they start making it in the morning, and its done by evening time. Its one of the best things I've ever had. I absolutely love it.
