Hordes of haleem lovers, ensure they schedule a trip to Hyderabad in the month of Ramzan just so that they don’t miss on the traditional treats!
Legend has it that the Nizam’s kitchen boasted of 49 types of biryani! Fish, quail, shrimp, deer, duck, rabbit… the varieties went on. There was a vegetarian version as well served in the Nizam’s court.
