Amidst the daily routine and struggle,
Came a fragrance from kitchen table,
The pungent smell, attractive by nature,
On menu card Hyderabadi Biryani featured.
Coming close the aroma irresistible,
Except taste all senses were disabled,
Spoon by spoon went in to flourish,
Each serving was a there to cherish.
The richly coloured rice uniformly cooked,
In it pieces of meat were hooked.
Plain rice constituted upper layer,
spicy masala was embedded deeper.
The masala had a delicious flavour,
Basmati rice- a delight to savour.
Cardamom, cinnamon, cloves connection,
Blended well to form a nice combination.
Raita compensated for the pungent taste,
I enjoyed each serving without any haste.
Such was the grandeur of the Biryani,
Tickled tongue at every rice grain, tasty though tiny..
