Yummy Haleem

                                    What comes to your mind immediately,when you think of Hyderabad : Briyani ,Charminar , Pearls ,Irani chai, Golconda fort  etc.It's time to add one more to this list called as Haleem . 

It is an Arabian dish made of wheat,barley,spices,lentils and meat[chicken or minced mutton].In more simple words it is a non veg version of "நோன்பு கஞ்சி "  that we used to take from our Muslim friends during the Ramzaan month in Tamilnadu.

                                                            This is a special dish made only during the holy month of Ramzaan in India .In some other countries it is  prepared during the month of Moharram also .It is also called as  Khichra in some countries[Pakistan].The main idea of dish is to give strength to the people who are taking fast as this dish is full of nutrition and high calorie . But so much is the popularity of this dish , it became a roaring business now . "Pista House " is the No 1 place to taste best Haleem in Hyderabad.They even export Haleem to other countries during the month of Ramzaan.Some of the hotels in Hyderabad serves this dish throughout the year.

Some of the best place in Hyderabad to have Haleem are 

1) Pista House - Charminar and Mehadipatnam 

2) Sarvi Bakers - Mehadipatnam

3) Hotel Madina - Charminar
4) Hotel Adaab  - Nampally
5) Shah Ghouse Cafe - Shalibanda road ,Charminar

6) Mumtaz hotel - Warsiguda

                                                    I was looking forward to take this dish ever since I came to know about this and today my desire was fulfilled at Pista House . Wow . True to its fame and expectation , it is so good unlike the much hyped Hyderbadi Briyani's[Separate post coming soon on Hydera[Bad] Briyani]. 

Cost of 1 plate / serving of Haleem is Rs 120 @ pista House .No one can eat just one tagline is apt for this joint
It costed Rs 45 only in 2006
