Fisherman's Fare - Iftar 2015 Part 2

After beginning the Iftar series with Pista House & Daawat-a-Biryani, this time wanted to check out the most celebrated haleem in the city. Gave up one of my weekend meals and persuaded hubby to go all the way from Besant Nagar to Egmore, just for this. Well, the trip was worth it. The best haleem I've tasted so far. It was a tad bit spicy (which is absolutely okay with me), full of flavours and no bones. Yayyy!!! They sell like hot cakes. I grabbed a 300ml container. The haleem is topped with caramelized crispy onions, corriander & mint and roasted cashews with generous dosing of ghee. It costs 140 bucks which is absolutely worth every penny spent.

Apart from haleem, I also picked up Ande ka Meetha, Khubani ka meetha, chicken pakoda and mutton samosa. We also had rose milk, badam milk and falooda. The drinks were very watery and lacked flavour. Priced at 40 bucks, Ande ka meetha was lip smacking-ly delicious.  Slightly crumbly in texture, sweet with a taste of eggs and milk solids aka khoya with the flavour of ghee, this was simply yummy. The Qubani ka meetha aka the apricot pudding was good too. The apricots were well cooked and people who don't have a sweet tooth may find it too sweet. But for me it was perfect. Chicken pakoda was average and nothing to rave about. The mutton samosa were full of flavour. Crisp on the outside with good amount of filling that had mutton, onions and peas, it was spicy and good.

The iftar offerings from Fisherman's fare was very satisfying. Planning to go again for the haleem and ande ka meetha again if possible.
