  20. Dear Cool Lassie,

    Many of u have that doubt , Wat is 'Thalapakattu Biryani' , y its unique in taste.
    Yes,I love to clarify here...Its famous in Dindigul, South India, which is its origin, its famous as Thalapakattu biryani, since The guys who started and served there were wearing thalapakattu (turban) and hence it took that name.

    But if you are the one who had liking of South Indian briyanis, then I am sure you would appreciate this.

    Bon Appetite!
