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.
