Royal Haleem

I made haleem for the first time yesterday and it came out fine, only thing is I got a huge quantity. 🙂

Soak 1/2 cup of broken wheat, 1 or 2 Tbsp each of green gram, bengal gram, and red gram overnight.

Marinate 1/2 lb mutton in curd, coriander+mint+green chilli paste, ginger garlic paste, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala and salt for atleast an hour.

Fry sliced onions till brown and keep aside. Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add cloves, cinnamon sticks, black cardamom, pepper corns and some of the fried onions. Add the marinated meat, slit green chillies, coriander and mint leaves and half a cup of water and cook it for 3-5 whistles. You can cook it on stove top alternatively but it takes a lot of time, maybe 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Meanwhile wash the wheat and dals. Cook the wheat in 3 cups of water in a heavy bottomed pan with lid. Let the wheat cook for atleast an hour. Keep stirring occasionally so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom and add more water if required. Grind the dals and keep aside.

Now add the cooked meat, dals to the cooked wheat. Mix well, pour 3-5 Tbsp of ghee on top and let it cook on medium for atleast an hour, again keep stirring occasionally. Also check for salt, red chilli powder, garam masala and add them as needed. Add lime juice and serve. Garnish with the fried onions, coriander leaves, cashews and almonds.
