It is heavily influenced by Turkish (Biryani), Arabic (Haleem), Mughlai and Tandoori, with considerable influence of the spices and herbs of the native Telugu and Marathwada cuisine. Hyderabadi cuisine has a 400-year history legacy.
Hyderabadi cuisine is seen in the former Hyderabad State that includes Andhra Pradesh, Marathwada region (now in Maharashtra), and Hyderabad Karnataka region (now in Karnataka). The cuisine also contains city specific specialties like Hyderabad (Hyderabadi Biryani) and Aurangabad (Naan Qalia), Gulbarga (Tahari), Bidar(Kalyani Biryani) etc. The key difference from the North Indian cuisine is the presence of dry coconut and tamarind in its cuisine.
