India Today - - BEST OF INDIA - By Jwala Gutta, bad­minton player

Hyderabad is where haleem is be­lieved to have orig­i­nated from. While I pre­fer home- cooked haleem, Sarvi in Ban­jara Hills serves very good fare too. In the Old City, the three- decade- old Pista House on Shah Ali Banda Road is pretty pop­u­lar. Its mut­ton haleem is among the best in the city. An­other place not too far from Pista House is Shadaab. But I pre­fer Adaab, a Hy­der­abadi restau­rant in Nam­pally. Closer to my home in Ban­jara Hills is Kholani’s, owned by a Mus­lim fam­ily. I can eas­ily pol­ish off two help­ings of their haleem at one go. I’d rather work out more than give up on haleem. Peo­ple usu­ally strug­gle to fin­ish one help­ing, but not with my fam­ily and friends, who are all food­ies.
