Vijayalaxmi cooks family recipes passed down through the generations and her husband Narender is her official taste-tester. They have lived in Hyderabad for over four decades and are extremely passionate about food. They typically host with their son, daughter-in-law, and 3-year old grandson.
You will enjoy a traditional Hyderabadi meal in Vijayalaxmi and Narender’s home in a residential neighborhood of Hyderabad. Your meal may include dishes such as dum biryani (rice cooked with layers of spiced vegetables), bagara baingan (eggplant in a traditional Hyderabadi spice blend), aloo masala (potatoes in garlic, ginger, turmeric and chilies), egg curry, vendakka fry (okra), raita, with dessert to finish. Tea and coffee is offered upon request.
Enjoy eating with your hosts as you discuss the cuisine and culture in Hyderabad.
Please note, your hosts are not professional chefs, rather this experience is a visit into an authentic, local home to meet a local person and share the culture and cuisine together.
