A tiny town wedged between Bangalore and Chennai, Ambur’s claim to fame has always been its biryani and leather products. Having first been cooked in the royal kitchens of the Nawabs of Arcot, the popularity of the biryani has only grown over the years. Many say that it is a unique style of preparation (the meat and the rice are first cooked separately, and then brought together in a sealed, ‘dum’ vessel) that infuses the dish with delicious flavours. If you don’t want to burden yourself by driving down to Ambur, just join the crowds at Koramangala’s Ambur Biryani Point.
