Started than 100 years ago, Hameedi Confectionaries is one of oldest and most popular sweet shops in Hyderabad. The store has been dishing out some of the most luscious dessert options in town for years now. Hameedi was also the Nizam’s favourite! In fact he loved the Jouzi Halwa at Hameedi so much that he named the store after the last Turkish king and that’s how Hameedi Confectionaries got its name.
100 years ago, a sweet shop was setup by a young boy, Mohammed Hussain in a remote location in Hyderabad and this is claimed to be the first in the city, to serve a variety of confectioneries and desserts. Soon, word reached the Nizam and he tasted the sweets at the shop itself. It did not take him long to choose the Jouzi Halwa as his favorite and in merriment he announced the shop to be named of Turkish last king, Hameedi thus came to be known as Hameedi Confectioners.

There are many things that are old and dated in Hyderabad. But do you know that the city is also home to a 101-year-old sweet shop? Hameedi Confectionary, located in the busy streets of Mozamjahi market, is as authentic as it gets. Started by Mohammed Hussain when he was just a wee lad of 15 years, the shop shares its Turkish flavour with the Turkish lineage of its owner. For Hussain, starting the shop was his way of venturing into a business, informs Mazhar, Hussain’s grand son who now takes care of the shop.
A halwa with a spice is nice. It’s even better if the story behind it dates back to the Nizam Mohammed Hussain, a Turkish young boy of 15 decided to start his business and set up a sweet shop in Hyderabad. It was sometime in the early nineteenth century, then, this shop was also the first in the city during the rule of the Nizam, as claims go. The sweet shop sold everything Turkish, one of them happened to be the Jauzi Halwa. Being the only sweet shop to offer this, word spread fast and soon, the then Nizam (last Nizam) himself tasted the sweets in the shop
