Pista House – a restaurant that has garnered fame globally for its haleem beckons you to indulge in the gooey goodness of this Nizami dish this season.

Dabbas That Travel

Serving haleem since 20 years, Pista House has received a cult-like following in Hyderabad and other cities as well. With over 5,000 outlets whipping haleem during the month of Ramadan, you might wonder what makes Pista House stand out. The fact that it has been undertaking deliveries across the country as well as international orders, has made this restaurant a household name. Taking the Hyderabadi haleem to Middle East, Europe, and the USA, it has even opened its outlets in the USA, New Zealand, Oman, and UAE. With over 10 outlets in the city alone, Pista House is an obvious choice for sourcing haleem for several corporate companies, family gatherings during Ramzan etc. Well-packed in dabbas with tight lids, Pista House’s haleem travels to different parts of the world, wooing foodies for all the right reasons.

Slushy Frenzy Delights

Cooked for nearly 12 hours in a bhatti {a cauldron covered with a brick and mud kiln} on a low flame of firewood, the preparation for haleem begins much before the dawn breaks. The dish includes minced meat {usually goat meat, beef or chicken}, pounded wheat, ghee, dry fruits, spices, lentils and a lot of other things that result in the consistency. Garnished with fried onions, chopped coriander, and lime, this is worth going into a frenzy for. While the mutton haleem is the most popular at Pista House, it is also known for Badami Haleem that people take away in surplus amounts. Plus, if you have a haleem craving even after Ramadan month ends, Pista House can be your go-to as it serves it all around the year.

We visited the restaurant in Tolichowki and it was all lit up. Joining the festivities in welcoming the holy month, we rushed in and ordered ourselves some haleem. Although the cafe was crowded, there was no snag in the service and we were served in a jiffy. On digging in, we could taste the tender meat, cashew nuts; the occasional flavour of ground pepper and crisp fried onions making it an ambrosia worth not missing. We gobbled up our dishes within minutes and walked out making a mental note to come back for this experience.

If you don’t have the time to step out, you can place an order for it on Swiggy and chill at home. But we recommend visiting the restaurant as it is an experience you cannot forego.
