Ramzan 2023: Do you know the best haleem restaurants in Hyderabad? 

HYDERABAD: Ramzan has arrived, as has everyone's favourite dish, haleem, which is only available during Ramzan. Haleem lovers from all over the city are drooling over the wide variety of haleems offered in Hyderabad's iconic eateries.

Many people would be surprised to discover that the word "Haleem" is derived from the well-known Arabian dish harisah, also known as harees or hareesa, which was brought into South Asia by Arab traders and conquerors and tweaked by the natives for their own personal tastes.

Haleem, a Hyderabadi delicacy available only during Ramzan season, tastes so delicious that many foodies eagerly await Ramzan season to try it, and some even travel to Hyderabad during Ramzan season just to savour it.

Hyderabadi Haleem is an aromatic meat-based stew-like dish cooked with lentils, wheat, and spices. The wheat and lentils are soaked overnight before being boiled for at least 7-8 hours. The meat is then mixed with spices to make a wonderful stew known as Korma.

During Ramadan, Haleem outlets are set up across the city so that Muslims can break their fast in the evening. The dish was the first Indian meat product to receive the Geographical Indication (GI) mark in 2010.

Many young people have been seen queuing outside popular cafés in Hyderabad since the start of the haleem season to experience the first haleem of the season. Young people from all around the city flock to haleem eateries to taste the delectable mutton and chicken haleem during Ramzan season.

Eateries are also attempting to attract haleem lovers by tweaking haleem recipes and adding toppings such as eggs, dry fruits, chicken-65, fried onions, malai and so on.
