Haleem

Delicous haleem with all its devouring taste

 

 

Spicy, irresistable haleem , a divine mixture of wholesome grains and meat when blended to a peculiar taste, gives you an entirely great experaince of eating healthy and delicious meal. I just can’t stop myself eating more than usual. You will love it trust me! It has very tradtional and ritual roots and equally popular among muslim cuisines. Yet prepared and liked all over the world.

Ingredients:

-Boneless meat ( chicken/beef) 1 kg

-Onions 2 mediuem thinly sliced

-Yogurt 1 cup

-Wheat grains 250 gms

-Barley grains 125 gms

-Chick pea lentil 250 gms

-Red chilli powder 4-5 tbsps

-Corriander powder 3-4 tbsps

-Cumin powder 3-4 tbsps

-Salt 4-5 tbsps

-Chicken cube/ powder 3 tsps

-Green chillies 5 chopped

-Ginger garlic paste 3 tsps

-Oil 1 cup

-Lemons, fried onion, corriander and mint leaves, ginger julian cut and chat masala for garnishing.

 

Method:

Boil all the grains with green chillies. When done, cool and grind.

Prepare the meat curry by heating oil in a pot and add onions and fry until onions turns red, then add ginger garlic paste and fry. Add yogurt and fry a little then add meat and cook well. Add red chilli powder, salt, corriander powder, cumin powder and cook well. Add water about a cup or two depend how long it take too tender your meat. Do not evaporate the excess water dry, leave it a little runny as it will be mixed with the grains.

Now combine the cooked curry and grinded grains together and allow it cook for as much time you can give. As it traditionally being cooked on large scales overnight and that procedure is quite long and tediuos as you have to keep mixing it all the time and you won’t need to grind the grains for that matter.

But this one is far easier for home efforts and delicious as well.

Garnish with julian ginger, corriander and mint leaves, chat masala, lemon juice or slices and fried onions.

And make your guests happy 🙂

Kitchen Tip:

Store spices in a cook , dark place. Prevent from humidity and heat as it will lose their flavor more quickly.
