Let’s just agree that biryani is indeed one of the most popular delicacies in India. The slow-cooked rice bowl meal offers a burst of aromatic flavours that are unmatched, and the sheer variety makes us drool each time we sit to order some or make it at home. If you need more proof, visit a local biryani outlet and you’ll see a crowd gathered there each time. Thinking of a bowl full of flavourful rice and succulent meat layered one after another, already? 

A conversation about biryani cannot miss the city of Hyderabad, popular for the Hyderabadi Biryani. While Hyderabadi cuisine offers a variety of delicious delicacies, the biryani is unmissable, and is famous throughout the country. So much so that many people even say that to visit the city and not eat the Hyderabadi Biryani is a sin for foodies. As Hyderabad is synonymous with biryanis, a recent video from Hyderabad has gone viral, and saddened the hearts of foodies on the internet.

This short clip went viral in no time, leaving biryani lovers heartbroken. “Somebody is going to be unhappy for not getting his biryani order”, read the caption in the video, and people can't help but relate to it.
