“Biryani and Me” was introduced on PEO by Dinesh Maheshwari a few days back. It piqued my interest, but in all honesty, I am a little low on ordering for food deliveries. But yes, I had earmarked it since I have ordered food from his kitchen in past and totally loved it.
It was a pleasant surprise when he offered to send over some tasting sample. And by sample, he probably meant the food for the whole family because the portions were really huge 😁.
Punctuality: Neatly packed food package arrived right on promised time. Some may argue that since it was tasting sample, extra care would have been taken to deliver on time. Let me assure you, I have ordered multiple times from his venture “lets baati” in past, and food arrived on time for every single order.
Taste: I am not an expert on Biryani, but I can tell what tastes good.😇
Let me share an incident here. Dinesh had sent a sample few months back and I gave him honest feedback. He promised to work on it. The sample I got yesterday was a delicious and superior version of what I had tasted earlier. This clearly shows his commitment towards serving good food.
Back to food taste… Yes, the veg biryani was good. Something that one can easily order when craving for a wholesome meal. Spice level was just right.
Chettinad biryani was something new for me. The grain used was Seraga samba rice(Info courtesy : Dinesh). Flavour was very different from what I have been eating in various forms of Biryani. So I got online and did some research(I told you that I am not an expert). The spice mix should have a distinct flavour of coconut which forms an integral part of South Indian spice mix. Raita to go with it was cucumber raita with tempering of mustard seeds and some banana chips for the crunch.
Did I like it? Oh yes, I did.
Will I recommend it? Yes.
Do give it a try and share your experience here. I can confidently say that if something is not upto the mark, Dinesh will take that feedback and work on it.
