Must-Try Indian Dishes at BiryaninBarbq

Tandoori Chicken:
One of the quintessential dishes in Indian cuisine is Tandoori Chicken. At BiryaninBarbq, we take pride in preparing this dish to perfection. The secret lies in our traditional clay tandoor oven, where marinated chicken is cooked to tender, smoky perfection.
Tandoori Chicken is marinated in a mixture of yogurt and aromatic spices, including cumin, coriander, and paprika, which infuses it with a rich and flavorful profile. The yogurt tenderizes the chicken while the tandoor oven imparts a beautiful smoky char. The result is succulent, slightly crispy, and bursting with flavors.
Served with a side of mint chutney and fresh naan bread, our Tandoori Chicken is a must-try for anyone seeking an authentic Indian culinary experience. The balance of spices and the tenderness of the chicken make it a dish that keeps our customers coming back for more.
Butter Chicken:
Butter Chicken, also known as Murgh Makhani, is a creamy and indulgent Indian curry that has gained worldwide popularity. At BiryaninBarbq, we’ve perfected the art of making this beloved dish.
Our Butter Chicken is made using boneless tandoori chicken pieces simmered in a rich and velvety tomato-based sauce. The sauce is enriched with butter, cream, and a blend of aromatic spices that create a harmonious flavor profile. It strikes the perfect balance between mild sweetness and a hint of warmth from the spices, making it an excellent choice for those looking for a flavorful yet not overly spicy dish.
The succulent pieces of tandoori chicken soak up the creamy sauce, creating a mouthwatering combination that is best enjoyed with a side of fragrant Basmati rice or buttery naan bread. It’s no wonder that Butter Chicken is a favorite among both Indian food enthusiasts and newcomers to this cuisine.
Seekh Kebabs:
Seekh Kebabs are a delightful appetizer that you simply cannot miss when dining at BiryaninBarbq. These skewered, grilled kebabs are packed with robust flavors and are perfect for whetting your appetite.
Our Seekh Kebabs are made from a mixture of finely minced meat, typically lamb or chicken, combined with an array of aromatic spices and herbs. The mixture is then molded onto skewers and grilled to perfection, resulting in a smoky, slightly charred exterior and a juicy, flavorful interior.
The spices used in Seekh Kebabs include garlic, ginger, cumin, and garam masala, which give them a distinctive taste that is both savory and mildly spicy. Served with a side of mint chutney and freshly squeezed lemon juice, these kebabs are a burst of flavor with every bite.
Whether you’re enjoying them as an appetizer or a main course, Seekh Kebabs are a mouthwatering addition to your Indian dining experience at BiryaninBarbq.
Chana Masala:
For our vegetarian guests, Chana Masala is a comforting and flavorful dish that showcases the versatility of Indian cuisine. This hearty chickpea curry is a staple in Indian households, and we prepare it with the same love and care at BiryaninBarbq.
Chana Masala is made from tender chickpeas simmered in a tomato-based sauce infused with a blend of spices such as coriander, cumin, and turmeric. The dish has a vibrant flavor profile that balances tangy, spicy, and savory notes, making it a crowd-pleaser.
At BiryaninBarbq, we take pride in slow-cooking our Chana Masala to allow the flavors to meld together and create a rich, comforting dish. It’s the perfect choice for those seeking a vegetarian option that doesn’t compromise on taste and satisfaction.
Rogan Josh:
Rogan Josh is a classic Indian dish hailing from the region of Kashmir. It is a flavorful lamb curry that is known for its vibrant red color and aromatic spices. At BiryaninBarbq, we prepare Rogan Josh with utmost care and attention to detail.
The key to a great Rogan Josh lies in the blend of spices used in the curry base, including Kashmiri red chili powder, ginger, and fennel seeds. This combination imparts a rich, slightly spicy flavor that is distinctive to the dish.
Our tender pieces of lamb are slow-cooked in this flavorful sauce, allowing the meat to absorb all the complex spices and develop a melt-in-your-mouth tenderness. The result is a hearty and aromatic curry that pairs perfectly with steamed rice or naan bread.
Rogan Josh is a testament to the diversity of Indian cuisine, and it’s a must-try for those looking to explore the flavors of the subcontinent.
Malai Kofta:
Malai Kofta is a decadent Indian dish that is often reserved for special occasions. It consists of deep-fried vegetable or paneer (Indian cottage cheese) balls served in a creamy tomato-based sauce.
At BiryaninBarbq, we take pride in our Malai Kofta, which is a labor of love. The kofta balls are made from a mixture of finely grated paneer and vegetables, which are seasoned with a blend of aromatic spices and herbs. They are then deep-fried to golden perfection, creating a delightful contrast between the crispy exterior and the soft, flavorful interior.
The creamy tomato sauce is the crowning glory of this dish. It’s rich, slightly sweet, and infused with spices that give it a luxurious flavor profile. The kofta balls are gently simmered in this sauce, allowing them to absorb the creamy goodness.
Malai Kofta is a dish that celebrates the richness and opulence of Indian cuisine, and it’s a must-try for those looking for a truly indulgent dining experience.
No exploration of Indian cuisine is complete without mentioning Samosas, the beloved Indian pastry pockets filled with savory goodness. At BiryaninBarbq, our Samosas are a crowd-pleaser and the perfect way to start your meal.
Our Samosas feature a crispy, flaky pastry shell that encases a flavorful filling of spiced potatoes, peas, and aromatic herbs. The filling is a symphony of flavors, with the potatoes providing a hearty base, the peas adding a touch of sweetness, and the spices infusing every bite with warmth and complexity.
Served with tamarind chutney and mint chutney, our Samosas are a delightful combination of crunchy, savory, and tangy. They are an excellent choice for sharing with friends and family or enjoying as a snack anytime you crave a taste of India.
Hyderabadi Biryani:
While BiryaninBarbq offers a diverse range of Indian dishes, we can’t forget our namesake and the dish that has captivated food enthusiasts worldwide—Hyderabadi Biryani.
Our Hyderabadi Biryani is a true masterpiece. It’s a fragrant rice dish cooked with long-grain Basmati rice, succulent pieces of marinated meat, and a blend of aromatic spices. What sets this Biryani apart is the Dum cooking technique we employ. The Biryani is slow-cooked in a sealed pot, allowing the flavors to meld together and create a harmonious symphony of tastes and aromas.
The result is a Biryani that is flavorful, aromatic, and layered with complexity. Each grain of rice is infused with the essence of the spices and the tender meat, making every bite a memorable experience.
At BiryaninBarbq, we take pride in delivering an authentic Hyderabadi Biryani that transports you to the streets of Hyderabad with every mouthful. It’s a dish that has earned its reputation as a culinary treasure.
