That incomparable Hindi/Urdu mix spoken in the city of Hyderabad and environs.
It is a dialect that boasts its own poetry, including ghazals.

Usage

When the linguistic snob (from the north of the Deccan plateau) makes fun of your sing-song speech of the Hyderabad of biryanis and kebabs and dabbal-ka-meetha, just smile and let it go. For as long as Dakhani sweetens your tongue, your spirit can never sour.
