Ramadan gives holy fillip to Haleem sales in Hyderabad

Hyderabad: The holy month of Ramadan has resulted in a sharp increase in sale of delicacies here, with Haleem being the hot favourite. Hyderabadi Haleem is cooked on wood fire to maintain its aroma. It takes a lot of time to prepare it. The mouth-watering delicacy is made of wheat, mutton, gram, pulses, curd, onions and vegetable oil with a sprinkling of spices. Talking to mediapersons, Mohammad Abdul Masjeed, a sweet shop owner, said the demand for the Mughalai specialty rises during Ramadan and is popular all over the world. “Haleem is a new dish which is introduced all over India , so a lot of people like it. Especially in metros like Delhi and Mumbai there is a lot of demand of this dish. We export Haleem all over the world. It's a very nutritious dish,” Masjeed said. Eateries in the city are busy preparing Haleem, considered ideal for breaking the fast during Ramadan. Restaurants in cities such as Mumbai and Chennai bring in chefs from Hyderabad to cook it. Ramadan, the ninth month of the Hijri Lunar calendar, honours the revelation of the holy Koran to Prophet Muhammad.
