ReadyBowl is a delivery-only chain that specializes in biryani and South Indian food. An interesting fact is that they serve biryani and all food items by weight! After reading some reviews on Zomato, I figured out that one of their outlets is in my locality. So, I decided to visit their kitchen to order the food. I could have ordered online as well but as I was already heading outside and their kitchen is at a walking distance from my home so going there was a better option to me.
They have a big kitchen and it is well maintained, neat and clean. Hygiene is an important factor and cannot be overlooked. ReadyBowl managed a decent score on cleanliness according to me. I ordered a 1/8 portion of a kilo of Special Chicken Biryani with leg pieces. I also ordered a 1/8 portion of a kilo of Chicken Bhuna Masala gravy with butter fulkas (chapati).
On asking the chef, he told that it was a dum biryani. If that’s correct, then they would have cooked the biryani using Dum Pukht method. I can’t assure you about this fact as they haven’t mentioned anywhere about their biryanis being dum biryanis. Nevertheless, it’s just a cooking method but the taste is really superb! I can easily say it was one of the best Hyderabad-style biryanis I had so far in Bangalore. It was a mildly-spiced biryani that suited my taste buds. They use long grain Basmati rice for preparing biryani and the flavours are perfect. The biryani was served with raita and salan. Both were good. Although, I don’t like to have biryani with salan and I always enjoy it with raita but it was the tastiest salan I had with biryani.
Chicken Bhuna Masala was a South Indian-style spicy chicken gravy with curry leaves, cashew nut and South Indian spices. It seemed like the chef had gone an extra mile to make the gravy rich and delicious. It had similarities with the Chicken Chettinad curry, I had once at a Rayalaseema cuisine restaurant. The taste was good, quality was rich, and an aroma of spices and curry leaves made it even more delicious. Overall, it was a satisfying experience.
