Haleem Trail: Green Park Hotel, Begumpet

Green Park Hotel is one of the places in Hyderabad which serves haleem around the year as part of their Midnight Biryani buffet. However, during Ramzan, the hotel puts up a stall on their campus, selling Iftar food from the evening till 10 pm. Apart from Haleem, a limited menu of kababs, biryani, and desserts are also available for takeaway, as well as delivered through Swiggy and Zomato.

I am a big fan of Green Park Hotel. I stay in the vicinity and often visit them for their Midnight Buffet (See: Midnight Buffet at Green Park Hotel), which is one of the sought-after late-night joints for the last two decades, steadily maintaining its popularity. Their Haleem kiosk during Ramzan is another promotion that is loved by one and all.

The Haleem 

Green Park’s Boneless Mutton Haleem is definitely one of the better ones in the city. Though Puritans have often scoffed at Haleem without bones, I like the perfectly blended preparation with abundant meat and ghee. The hotel has high expertise in this dish as they prepare it all through the year, and have been able to maintain the consistency in taste over the years. Only on very few occasions during the twenty years, I have found the haleem not up to the mark.

The ratio of meat to wheat is pretty decent and the level of spice is adequate. Everything is blended together to a porridge-like consistency. The amount of ghee used here is also less than in conventional places.  We need to mix the garnishing of fried onions and a dash of lime on top before tasting. I personally enjoy my haleem with a bit more mint leaves in it.

Overall the haleem is boneless, less oily, and medium spicy but quite delicious. For the takeaway package fried onions, and lemon wedges are also provided in the haleem. Overall the packaging, which has been specially designed, looks clean, hygienic, and attractive.

For some people, who are particular about the hygiene factor of major haleem outlets, Green Park is a place where you can enjoy your haleem. A plate of Chicken Haleem costs Rs 405, whereas a Boneless Mutton Haleem is Rs 535.

The counter also sells other delicacies for Iftar. They have two varieties of biryani and three varieties of desserts on the special menu. I have been a fan of Green Park biryani for a long time, and one should especially try out their super Mirchi ka Salan which comes with it. 

The special Ramzan Menu also has sweet dishes like Double Ka Meetha, Apricot Pudding, and Khubani Ka Meetha.

Location:  Green Park Hotel is itself a landmark on the Greenlands-Ameerpet Road. It is close to the Begumpet Flyover and Begumpet Metro Station

Disclaimer: The feedback and ratings are based on sampling on a particular day. In many such outlets, taste is not consistent, and varies from day to day and branch to branch.
