The delicacy of Hotel Nayaab is even harder to find as it isn’t hidden in a backstreet, but the menu item is hidden in plain sight. Under the list of breakfast items, foreigners may be at a loss as to what exactly Bheja Fry is and order the restaurant’s popular Biryani (spicy rice casserole).
Those on a mission, though, will know to go straight for a Bheja Fry breakfast. Bheja Fry is far from your ordinary bacon and eggs order, it’s Fried Lamb Brain! The spiced grey matter is a local specialty in Hyderabad, India. It’s fried, with a masala (spice mix), seeping distinct Indian flavors into each bite. Pair with a pile of Khameeri Roti (soft flatbread) and start the day a little more—dare we say—brain-y!
