Hyderabadi Haleem

The city of Hyderabad is known for its delectable haleem, which is available only during Ramadan. It is a mainstay during the Holy month of Ramadan. This traditional wheat porridge has its roots in Iran (Persia).

Even today mitthi (sweet) and khari (salted) haleem variants are served for breakfast in the homes of people living in the Barkas area of Hyderabad.

The salted variety is popular during the month of Moharram and Ramadan. The high-calorie haleem is the perfect way to break the Ramadan fast. The ingredients are wheat, lentils, lamb, spices and ghee and sprinkled with lemon juice and/or spicy masala to adjust flavor to the taste of the eater.

A vegetarian derivative of haleem, dry fruits and vegetables are used, is also prepared during Ramadan.

Haleem is also a traditional starter at muslim weddings in Hyderabad, and also at muslim functions or parties.

Narrated AbuHurayrah:
The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) used to say: "O Allah, I seek refuge in Thee from four things: Knowledge which does not profit, a heart which is not submissive, a soul which has an insatiable appetite, and a supplication which is not heard."
