I love hyderabadi cuisine. Specially hyderabadi muslim cuisine. It is so rich, the look , the smell and the ingredients, everything is rich.
I have always wanted to learn a lot of hyderabadi recipes. This was one of them. The rich gold hand rolled vermicelli, is so delicate that it breaks just with a touch and melted in your mouth once cooked. I am so happy that i have finally achieved the shahi kheer :)
