After our banana leaf lunch at Krishna Curry House, my brother and I returned as promised, for the briyani. My mum mentioned to us a while back that she wanted to eat briyani the next time she visits. So I told my brother that we should scout around for good briyani. I always find excuses to eat and this is a good one don't you think?
We have seen this sign many times but every time we come here, we are compelled to eat banana leaf rice instead. We reckon that white rice goes better if we want to savor the curries. But the mission for the day was briyani tasting. So Coimbatore Chicken Briyani it was.
We also added an order of our favorite mutton curry (again!).
This was how it was served, in metal pots with a ladle and a hard boiled egg each. There is also a small serving of the curry gravy and an onion relish.
This is a raw onion relish. I'm guessing it is mixed with yogurt. Generally speaking, I do not like plain yogurt or yogurt dressing. But eaten with curry, the yogurt taste is overpowered by the curry and that makes it palatable to me.
My brother was not too thrilled with the raw onions (though he eats raw onions) and offered me to finish the whole lot. I was more than happy to accept.
We were glad when the server came back with vegetables. That day the vegetables were acar, radish and spinach. We helped ourselves before the server took it away to refill and serve other tables.
This is my briyani with a whole chicken leg buried in the rice. We were given banana leaves and I scooped my briyani onto my banana leaf. I discovered that the serving portion for one person is very generous. Perfect for me! If you are a small eater, this is best shared.
|There was still quite a bit of briyani in the pot. What you see is not all.|
This serving is big and very suitable for big eaters like my brother and I. We were very quiet as we delightfully ploughed into our very flavorful briyani.
We also enjoyed the mutton curry to the max. This is sooooo good! On the suggestion of the server, we also got ourselves a rasam each.
It does not look very impressive but the taste packs a powerful punch. I realized that this is the crab rasam I saw advertised on my earlier visit. This Crab Rasam is really good. You can taste the crab and spices. Too bad that I was too stuffed to finish my rasam. I only managed to drink slightly more than half.
By the end of the meal, we were very full and very satisfied. I think my mum and dad would enjoy the briyani here very much. Well, should we get another craving for banana leaf rice or briyani, we will come back to Krishna Curry House. There's no need to go anywhere else. Burppp.......
