As one enters the spacious premises of K&M International Hotel, one is drawn towards a quaint hut, where men and women are busy cutting, chopping and cooking various delicacies.

A delicious aroma of fried ‘bamboo chicken' envelops the air and one is tempted to take a bite. The special variety is made by stuffing marinated meat pieces into bamboo stems.

The stems are then placed on coal fire, allowing the chicken to set in. The entire cooking is done without using oil. This is one of the many country-made delicacies being offered at the hotel.

Other delicacies

The others include special varieties of Rayalaseema dishes being offered since January 23. The famed ‘natukodi pulusu' (country chicken), ‘bommidala pulusu', ‘jonna rotti' are among the favourite Rayalaseema dishes.

“The dishes are being most sought-after by families willing to eat out after a hectic day of work. We are trying to cater to the tastes of various sections of people,” say Ravi Kumar and Chowdary, managing partners.

For connoisseurs of biryani, a variety of dishes are on offer. They include ‘chicken damaka biryani', ‘mutton dum biryani', ‘korameenu dum biryani' and ‘gulab dum biryani'.
