My son was visiting Hyderabad after a few months and he had requested us to keep some Andhra food ready at home from a takeaway, so that he can start his food journey as soon as he reaches home from the airport. After an animated debate between me and my wife, she chose Sri Kanya over Kakatiya Deluxe Mess.
The Takeaway was crowded as ever at 6:30pm. I was planning to buy a lot of Quail Fry, but the person at the counter informed me that only 2 birds were left. I promptly placed an order for them along with Chicken Fry Biryani, Boneless Mutton Fry and Chicken Roast. A plate of each resulted in a bill of Rs 720.
We started with the Chicken Fry Biryani. I am an old fan of Sri Kanya and trying their delicacies for more than a decade. The Chicken Fry Pulao was good as usual, with the chicken fry pieces at the bottom covered by the clove and cardamom flavored bagara rice. However it seemed to me that a lot of excess chili powder was sprinkled on the chicken pieces at the end, without properly mixing the same, which dampened the taste a bit.
The Quail Fry, my all time favorite here was a clear winner. The quail was soft and crunchy and the masala covering the fried bird tasted great too.
I was disappointed by the quantity of boneless mutton fry. For Rs 200 only a handful pieces of boneless mutton were served. The masala had too much of curry leaves, which I found a bit surprising.
The chicken roast was really fabulous. The chicken was well cooked and the masala was a perfect complement to the succulent chicken pieces. This was perhaps the best item of the day.
Sri Kanya remains good. The prices have gone up a bit, the quantity of some dishes have decreased, but the demand is intact. Always be there early to avoid disappointment, as their items finish up quite early. Do not go there if you don’t like hot and spicy food.
