Thalappa Biriyani aa?

In the last few weeks, I have been seeing one brand regularly wherever I go Thalappakattu Biriyani. This eatery seems to have plenty of branches and lots of delivery vehicles on the road. Does anyone know about the quality of the biriyani? The name is very intriguing though.

    This is famous in Dindigul where the “thalappakattu” is a mysterious recipe(much like the coca-cola recipe!) handled by a family for generations. The name is generic, much like Chicken-65. I don’t know about the quality(either here or from Dindigul) as I am a veggie…but I suppose it is much better than the “kaka-biriyani” which you can see in and around the Mambalam bus stand;)

    Its famous in Dindigul which is its origin.its famous as Thalapakattu biryani. The guys who started and served there were wearing thalapakattu (turban) and hence it took that name.
    Had tasted when i was young. Mutton biryani is famous. Thalapakattu at dindigul was good. their branch at coimbatore was ok. Havent tasted at chennai coz got converted to vegeterian ;)
    But if you are the one who had liking of north and eastern india briyanis, then i doubt you would appreciate this.

    But you could give a try once. Dont forget to blog once you eat there :) bon appetit !

    My brother who has tasted Thalappa Kattu Biriyani at Dindigul says that the original one at Dindigul costs Rs 52/- per half plate. The shop here at Mandaveli offers at Rs 30/- per half plate. He feels what you get in Chennai may not be mutton biriyani and could be beef biriyani
