1 cup Oil
1 tsp. Garam masala

10-12 green chilies

How to make Haleem


Soak all three grains overnight.

Fry the meat in oil. Add 1 tsp. salt, ½ tsp. Turmeric (Haldi) powder, 1 tsp. chili powder, bay leaf and 6-8 glasses of water. Cover and leave on low flame to tenderize until the meat is extremely soft.

Meanwhile, put the grains and dal in a pot with 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp chili powder and ½ tsp Turmeric (Haldi). Add water and cook on low flame till very soft.

When meat and the grains are soft, mix them together, leave on a very low flame and keep mashing and mixing rigorously. It is ready when starts to boil and becomes bubbly.

Fry onion in oil (for Baghar) and for garnishing. Add the oil to the mixture and keep aside the fried onion for garnishing.

Remove from heat and serve with garam masala, fresh Coriander (Dhaniya) leaves, green chilies, fried onion and lemon.

TIP: whenever frying onion for "Baghar" or as accompaniment with Haleem, fry on very low heat for a good flavor. You can hurry it up and fry it on a high heat but you'll just get a burnt sort of flavor.

Serving: 8 to 10 persons

haleem is very delicious thing but there is one thing that if you cook haleem in daig , that is the only thing which makes it more delicious and perfectly tasteful. Otherwise cooking it on the stove does not bring the expected taste.

Thanks for sharing this haleem recipe. I have to make haleem tonight , first I had a perception that it can only be made within a daig however i searched and found that it can be made in a small or medium size saucepan as well. I will make it now.
