How to Make Pakistani Style Haleem

  • Soak all three grains overnight.
  • Fry the meat in oil.
  • Add all the spices and 4 to 5 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,1/2 tsp chilli powder and 1/4 tsp haldi powder.
  • Add water and cook on low flame till very soft.
  • When both are soft, mix the meat and grains together and leave on a very low flame.
  • Keep mashing and mixing.
  • It starts to boil and becomes bubbly, fry a little onion in oil and add to it.
  • Remove from heat and serve with garam masala, fresh coriander leaves, green chillies, fried onion and lemon.
  • Tip :
  • Whenever frying onion for "bhagaar" or as accompaniment with Haleem, fry on very low heat for a good flavour.
  • You can hurry it up and fry it on a high heat but you'll just get a burnt sort of flavour.
