Haleem

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

Fuska / Fuchka / ফুসকা -The Best Street Food Ever

Fuska Fuska is the most popular street food in Bangladesh. I bet that every Bangladeshi, who lives in abroad, misses its unique spicy, sour, crispy taste. But we can easily make it at home and enjoy the deshi flavour in abroad. It is a bit long process, if you make the Fuska shell before, it will be less hustle. Only one thing (Talmakhana) will be hard to get in abroad. You can bring it from Bangladesh. Even you can buy readymade Fuska shells from Indian grocery. But I always prefer homemade one.   Ingredients: For dough: . 1 and ½ cups plain flour .1 tablespoon semolina . ½ teaspoon salt . 1  teaspoon Talmakhana . Oil for deep fry For stuffing: . 200 grams dried peas . 1 cup diced large boiled potato .  1 tablespoon roasted cumin powder . 1 finely sliced medium size onion . 4 finely sliced green chillies .
