Haleem

Haleem
By Rownak Jahan,
March 27, 2012Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes
Yield: 4-6 serves

Haleem is basically spicy lentil soup. I found that soup mix is a handy thing to make it. Though I mix moog dal with soup mix in this recipe. Soup mix actually mix of wheat, red lentil, split peas mixture . If you want to make by yourself , just use equal amount of wheat red lentil, split peas, moong dal and green moong(mashkolai / urad dal). I skipped green moong (mashkolai dal in this recipe) and added moong dal with soup mix here . Hope you will like home made the flavour of haleem.

Ingredients:

• 1 and ½ cup soup mix

• ½ cup moong dal

• 2 tablespoon kali jeera rice ( enhance flavour a lot)

• 500 gram beef or mutton(curry cut)

• 2 large onion sliced

• 1 tablespoon chilli powder

• 1 tablespoon curry powder

• 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder

• 2 teaspoon ginger paste

• 1 teaspoon garlic paste

• 2 green chillies sliced

• 2 tablespoons cucumber sliced

• 2 teaspoon Ginger finely chopped

• ½ teaspoon roasted cumin powder

• ½ lime

• 3 tablespoon oil / ghee

• ½ teaspoon black salt

• Salt to taste
