Hyderabadi Haleem

Hyderabadi haleem is a type of haleem popular in the Indian city Hyderabad. Haleem is a stew composed of meat, lentil and pounded wheat made into a thick paste.

The food originated as an Arabic dish and was introduced to the Hyderabad State by the Arab diaspora during the Nizam’s rule.

Blended with local traditional spices, it formed a unique Hyderabadi haleem, becoming a popular food among the native residents by the 19th-century.
