Hyderabadi Haleem triumphed over other foods including Rasgulla, Bikaneri Bhujiya, and Ratlami Sev to win the “Most Popular GI.”
Based on feedback from the public, the ministry of commerce and industry chose the dish for the award. To choose the dish, voting took place between August 2 and October 9.
People from India and overseas took part in the voting process, and the majority of them selected Hyderabadi Haleem.
The award was recently presented to MA Majeed, director of Pista House and president of the Hyderabad Haleem Makers Association, by Minister of Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal.
The ingredients for Hyderabadi Haleem include meat, lentils, wheat, spices, and other seasonings. In the city, it is the food that people eat the most of during Ramadan.
Many restaurants in the city set up Haleem outlets during the holy month. Many city people rely on it as a source of employment in addition to being a business.
As a result, Ramadan has become synonymous with the meal. The Indian GIS registry office granted it Geographical Indication status (GIS) in 2010 in acknowledgment of its cultural importance and popularity, making it the country’s first non-vegetarian dish to do so.
Although it is easily available during the holy month, some stores made it available throughout the year.
What exactly is GI tag?
Products are given a GI tag to ensure that authorized users can only use the popular product name.
Many items in Telangana received the tag. However, only Hyderabadi Haleem received the status in the food category.
In 2010, Hyderabadi Haleem received GI status for the first time. It expired in December of 2019.
Nirmal toys and crafts, Nirmal furniture, Nirmal paintings, Gadwal sari, and Banaganapalle mangoes are among the other Telangana items that were accorded GI tag.
