There are primarily five centers we covered in the first edition of the Great Indian Food Trip – The South Indian Biryani Trail. In each of the centers we explored every known variation of Biryani available.
So from iconic and legendary restaurants to a hole in the walls which only the locals would know about, we were there to explore the city. And here is also where we need your help is deciding where we should be eating. Remember there were four of us, and between two meals we could potentially try out around 8 different kinds of biryanis in the city we step food in. Sounds exciting? We sure are looking forward a culinary road trip – The Great Indian Food Trip!
Center One: Hyderabad
Center Two: Bangalore
Center Three: Chennai
Center Four: Coimbatore

One very crucial aspect we would like to talk about here is how we plan to bring travelers together with this road trip. How you may ask.
We took the best Biryani from each city in Milton casseroles to the next city for a traveler meetup where there is one item on the menu – Biryani from the previous city! So Chennaites had Biryani from Bangalore, and Bangalorites had the best Biryani from Hyderabaad!
One reason why this idea came about was that we felt the eternal debate for the best biryani in India is best settled by trials. While we’re not certain that there would be one that would walk away as the winner, we know there is a debate raging already.
How did we make all of this happen? Thanks to world class Milton Microwow casseroles!
Does it make your blood boil that we would pick a Hyderabad Biryani over an Ambur Biryani? Or do you think that the sole bragging rights are for the Malabar Biryani? There is only one way to find out. Meet us as road trip across four states in South India and try out Biryani like never before – On the Great Indian Food Trip – The South Indian Biryani Trail!
