Ever wondered about the secret of Hyderabadi biryani? Its Sri Murugan ghee


Sitting at a restaurant in Hyderabad and relishing your chicken biryani, have you ever wondered what is the secret behind its alluring aroma? Ghee is the secret of a good biryani. And where does the ghee for Paradise Biryani come from? Sri Murugan Ghee Store, a 70-odd-years-old ghee store on the Badi Chowdi Road in Sulthan Bazar in Hyderabad.
In the 1950s, A.V Shanmughan from Tamil Nadu set up Sri Murugan Ghee Store, a small shop selling buffalo ghee. Back then, the store had just half the space that it has now and everything happened there – from processing to storing to packaging to selling. Now, it has transformed into a big store selling not just ghee but sweets, another branch in Ashok Nagar in Indira Park Road, a ghee processing factory in Nacharam, and a sweet-making factory in Uppal.
