With the Ramadaan(Ramzan) month going on, who would not want to taste the delicacy prepared specially during this festive month. And when Bangalore has so many stalls just during this month.  After the whole day fast, at sunset the fast is broken which is also known as “iftaar”. A number of delicacies are prepared for iftaar and one of the special dish is “haleem”.

Haleem is a dish, which means cooked with patience,  originates  from the Muslim kitchen all around the world. In India it traces back to Hyderabad. It is prepared from wheat, meat, lentils and spices. The specialty is that it is cooked slowly for 6-7 hours which brings out the amazing taste.

I have tasted Haleem at Dakhani Degh and Taste of Rampur. The haleem at Taste of Rampur in Kormangala was really good. Though a little expensive , it was worth the money. The small bowl of haleem is more than enough for your stomach. Khubani ka Meetha and Double ka Meetha was good at Dakhani Degh in Jayanagar 4th T block.
