Varun, the Executive Chef of the Novotel Hyderabad Airport is visibly excited. He's about to be a tourist in his own city. The 'old city' around the Charminar is hardly an hour away from his hotel and yet it's a world away for the city's large IT workforce and residents like Varun who stay in the city's newer neighbourhoods. Ramadan is one time of the year that many Hyderabadis are willing to brave the crowds in the old city to sink their teeth into delicacies that are sometimes not available around the year.
It's well over 35 degrees at 8 pm but that doesn't deter Chef Varun who has carefully plotted my route through the city's iconic dining establishments along with Zubair Ali of Hyderabad Food Diaries who organises food tours in the old city. The atmosphere is festive, the old city is teeming with foodies and shoppers, alike. This is only the first weekend of the Ramadan month, Zubair tells me that it will get busier as we get closer to Id-ul-Fitr .

We take you through some of the best dining options in the Old city of Hyderabad through the month of Ramadan: The best Haleem in India: Proud Hyderabadis will tell you that their haleem - the quintessential Ramadan porridge with pounded meat blended with broken wheat, barley and lentils - is the best in India. After sampling the haleem at two iconic establishments, I completely agree. There's PistaHouse, arguably the most popular stop for haleem in Hyderabad. They also ship their haleem across India and around the world. There's also Shah Ghouse that's not as popular, but serves an even finer haleem in my opinion. Saima Afreen, a local food and lifestyle writer who accompanied me, tells me that the key ingredient is a high-quality wheat that locals call the sharbate gehun. Do check out the haleem at both Shah Ghouse and Pista house that are just a few buildings apart and take your pick.
