Haleem / Hyderabadi Haleem / Haleem in Pressure cooker / Ramadan special – Exotic Recipe

Standard

After a month time, here comes our Exotic Wednesday – with an Exotic Recipe, due to RAMZAN / RAMADAN/ IFTAR festival, I have shared the making of Haleem. Haleem or Daleem is a popular Middle Eastern stew. It varies from region to region, but traditionally it is cooked with wheat, barley, lentils and meat, particularly Lamb / Mutton pieces.

Haleem can also be prepared with Chicken, but traditionally it is prepared only with lamb meat. It is slow cooking dish which takes more than 4 hours of cooking. But as of our fast and modern today’s world, I have prepared it in pressure cooker. But it took almost 2 hrs of preparation, I would say that it’s worth spending time for such a heavenly dish.

Haleem can be served along with nan, roti or any Indian Flat bread, it can also be consumed as such. I like to have Haleem as such and never look out for any rice or breads. As Haleem possess, a paste like texture with the flavors of spices, it is easy to consume and digest.

Usually Haleem is prepared only with the lentils, wheat, barley, mutton and ginger-garlic and remains pale white in color. But I like to blend them with little spiciness and so infused little chilli powder, turmeric powder and Garam Masala. So I have shared both the versions of Haleem. It is most popular among the people of Hyderabad, Bangladesh, Middle East and Pakistan.

Haleem is prepared in Hyderabad during the Ramadan month and is transported all over the world. It is sold as a snack food and street food in Pakistani bazaars throughout the year.

Must to try for all the non-vegetarians, it all looks difficult but it’s very simple and easy to make. Also Haleem can be served by topping it with fried onions, fresh coriander leaves, lemon slices, boiled egg, finely chopped mint leaves and thinly sliced ginger root.
