    haleem has always provided awesome joys to our taste buds. I eat many kinds of haleem, sometimes in my office, sometimes at house with family, sometimes with a close buddy at a nearby haleem vendor. But taste is not same all the time. Haleem is very special at some places but not same at every place.

    haleem is a tasteful food from Pakistani and Indian cuisines. I have loved to eat these types of foods such as Hyderabadi Haleem and biryani. I like it for its ingredients too which are very healthy such as wheat and barley.

  • Samia - Islamabad Apr 24, 2017

    Haleem takes though long time to make but it is the best recipe from Asian cuisines. Its taste is matchless and if you make a haleem with everything perfect, you would be asking for it again and again.
