The flavour of mint leaves is the basic thing and combination which I love with shahi haleem recipe.

  • Ghazal, Lahore

Great flavour - my family loved it! I needed to add an extra flavor of mint to this Shahi haleem, but this may be because I added extra green chilies and onions. Definitely a keeper. Highly recommended by me.
