In 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic hit the city, Haleem was sold for about Rs 170. Post COVID-19, the prices of many things have touched the sky and no wonder why prices are going high with each passing day.
Things like petrol, vegetables, mutton and others are currently high. The pandemic has affected people in various ways and now, this Ramzan season, the price of Haleem is scaling heights.
Ramzan, during the yearly Numaish or exhibition held in Hyderabad, Pista House sold its Haleem for Rs 190. Sources from Pista House said that the rate of Haleem has not yet been decided, while other establishments in the city which have already started selling Haleem have priced it at Rs 200 per plate.
Café 555 and Sarvi, which began selling Haleem a week ago, have the basic Haleem plate priced at Rs 200. However, the latter is also selling its ‘special’ Haleem for Rs 250. Cheaper places like the Royal food court at Lakdikapool have set the rate of mutton Haleem at Rs 180 for a full pack, mini Haleem for Rs.100 and family pack for Rs 300.
