Cooked for more than eight hours, the Haleem served at this popular joint is made out of wheat, meat and lentils. However, keep in mind that only their Dongri outlet serves Haleem, and they only take special orders.

What started as a small pop-up out of a cosy Colaba living room is now probably the trendiest and most talked about food-start up in the country. Besides haleem, they also serve raans and biryanis that are genuinely authentic and home-made. Best part? They are truly affordable as well.
