Food in Aurangabad
Food and cuisine constitutes one of the most important determinants of the tourism potential of any place in the world. It is nothing other than good quality food than can sumptuously complement a traveller's experiences on a tour - and thus the richness entrenched in the cuisines of tourist spots around the world are taken into strong consideration by prospective travellers before deciding upon the destination. In this article, we shall talk about the delectable food and eclectic cuisine of Aurangabad, Maharashtra.
The quintessential Mughlai or Hyderabadi flavour is strongly present in the local cuisines of Aurangabad. With the spices and herbs sourced from the Marathi cuisines, the food available in the city is generally considered to be an amalgamated form of Hyderabad and Maharashtrian cuisines. While Marathwadi (Maharashtrian)cooking generally entails fastidious management of powdered masalas with the other ingredients, Hyderabadi dishes are born out of lavish garnishing.
Tahri- a kind of biriyani- is one of the most popular food items available in the city, and is made by adding meat to the rice concoction unlike the traditional method of biriyani preparation which involves adding the rice to the meat.
Naan Qalia is another famous dish consumed in Aurangabad, with its origin traced back to the army camps of Muhammad Bin Tughlaq in the medieval history of India. While ‘naan’ is a kind of bread made from tandoor, over a hot furnace, the ‘qalia’ is spicy concoction of mutton. Jhunkas, Pitlas, Chutney, Thecha and Thalipeeth are some of the other well known food items found in Aurangabad.
To put things succinctly, a tourist in Aurangabad can consider himself unlucky if he hasn't delved deep into the labyrinthe of the food and cuisine available here.
