Haleem is basically an Arab dish but soon gained popularity in Hyderabad. Traditional haleem takes hours to make where the mutton and dals are pound to get the best taste.

Irani Chai

At one time, Irani chai defined the café culture in Hyderabad, especially the old city. Introduced by settlers from Persia, the beverage and the places serving it evolved into an institution over time. In recent years, the onslaught from Baristas and Cafe Coffee Days has meant that Irani chai’s territory has shrunk. Nevertheless, this teahouse tradition retains its strongholds – around the old city, in small scattered bakeries, and in better-known restaurants like Garden Café and the legendary Paradise in Secunderabad, where it has large, fiercely loyal fan followers who start their day with the traditional Irani chai.
