Haleem is a delicious and filling Arabic stew normally made with an arrangement of grain or wheat, lentils and meat. It’s a common equation in the Middle East, Central Asia and Indian Subcontinent. It’s particularly renowned during the significant lot of Ramadan. Make sense of how to make delightful chicken haleem through my a little bit at a time direct with pictures.

If you like these Indian and Pakistani designs for Daal: Indian Yellow Lentils, Chicken Manchurian and Indian Chicken Korma, you’ll verifiably appreciate this lip smackingly extraordinary Haleem too!

Hiiiii! So I’ve been thinking all through late long stretches of posting a recipe for Haleem. Haleem is a too celebrated moderate cooked stew in the subcontinent (Pakistan and India) yet it truly starts from the Middle East. Hyderabadi haleem is particularly standard in the subcontinent.

Haleem is to some degree tangled and a long strategy to make, anyway really its completely supported, regardless of all the issue! I sent some haleem nearby my loved one to his office (considering the way that haleem is continually made in huge sums) and he said it was gone in minutes. Everybody appreciated it!

Moreover, with several tricks that I’m going to give you today, it’ll be a lot easier. I’ve included a tiny bit at a time photos with the objective that it’s less difficult for you to seek after the recipe.


Haleem is a sound and glorious moderate cooked stew which is frequently routinely made with mix of grain, lentils, rice and meat. Generally, sheep, sheep or chicken is used as the meat in haleem. The equation that I’m sharing today is Chicken Haleem and is especially predominant in Pakistan.


Haleem is an uncommon strong dish since it uses an arrangement of lentils and meat. It’s a filling dish that is ordinarily eaten without any other individual or can be eaten with naan.


Haleem is commonly beaten with a collection of embellishments, for instance, seared caramelized onions, pitifully cut ginger, green chillies and divided coriander. With a squash of lemon juice it might be fundamentally eaten with a spoon.

In any case, in Pakistan it’s regularly eaten with naan and it’s excessively awesome.



By and by you know me. I’m not the sort that is going to cook a tangled recipe for 8 hours. Since genuine Hyderabadi haleem is regularly cooked for 8 hours on low warmth. Umm, in no way, shape or form happening in a house where two kids live lol. This mother ain’t got the perfect open door for moderate cooking.

So I’ve offset the recipe with the objective that the time is restricted to around 3 hours (1 hour of which incorporates just retaining the lentils water). I understand it’s till totally long, anyway really by far most of it just incorporates mixing around and you can glance through Instagram (ahem, I mean consideration for the kids) while the haleem is cooking interminably.


Enter Shan Shahi Haleem mix. It’s a completed pack which goes with the lentils (tallying the grain and wheat) and the flavor mix. The pizzazz mix basically contains all of the flavors you necessity for making haleem.

Directly the proposed equation for Haleem is made on the pull out of the carton. I’ve revealed two or three upgrades to it be that as it may.



The lentils mix ought to be sprinkled for around 1-2 hours in water. I in like manner add a lot of each to the lentils mix: rice, yellow split lentils, and red split lentils. This is absolutely optional, so you can just hold fast to the lentils mix that is given box if that is less difficult.

So start by soaking the lentils. The day I have to make haleem, I generally splash the lentils when I wake up, and when I’m done with the morning calendar of breakfast and cleaning up, the lentils are fit to be cooked.

Coming up next is a picture of the lentils mix that has been soaked for 2 hours in water. I’ve exhausted the water.


You can use any meat, for instance, cheeseburger, sheep or chicken. I lean toward chicken with the objective that is the thing that I used. It furthermore cooks snappier. If you use burger or sheep, the cooking time will contrast and be consistently longer than it takes with chicken.

Start via singing cut onions instantly of oil, until they’re a light splendid dull hued.

By then incorporate boneless chicken pieces and cook for two or three minutes until they start to change concealing.

Incorporate HALF of the get-up-and-go mix (from the Shan Shahi Haleem pack) and cook the chicken for around 5-7 minutes until the oil confines.

By then incorporate the tomatoes and a pinch of water. Lower the glow and spread the pot. Cook for around 15 minutes or something to that effect, until the tomatoes have placated and cooked through.

Move the chicken masala from the pot to a bowl, and put in a protected spot.


By and by, in a comparable pot, incorporate the drenched lentils (without the water where they were sprinkled) and 12 cups of water, and the rest of the Shan Shahi Haleem enhance mix.

Cook for around 1 hour on medium high warmth. Keep blending as expected or close. The lentils and hardly are readied when they’re cooked through.

At the point when the lentils and hardly have cooked absolutely, incorporate the chicken masala.



The last advance is to blend the haleem. By and by haleem ought to be completely blended into a smooth paste, it ought to have some surface.

You can either use a blender or a hand blender. I used a hand blender since it’s easier.

f you’re using a blender, guarantee that the haleem is chilled off a piece before blending it. In like manner, if using a blender, you should blend the haleem in bunches. Only two or three beats of blending for each gathering of haleem is adequate.


The caramelized onions are a straightforward fixing to make, and you regularly never will find haleem served without these firm scorched onions. They’re actually my favored bit of haleem! 😛

It’s definitely not hard to make caramelized onions. Just fry daintily cut onions in a dash of oil (keeping the glow medium) and keep mixing until a significant splendid darker.

Moreover, to ensure in any occasion, burning, you need to keep mixing it after at standard interims or something to that effect.

At the point when the caramelized onions are scorched, spread them on kitchen paper to sprinkle the wealth oil.

By and by top the haleem with caramelized onions, ginger, coriander and chillies and a pulverize of lemon juice. In addition, appreciate!

The best technique to STORE HALEEM

Haleem is always made in colossal packs and this recipe in like manner makes a significant pot. So it’s basic to acknowledge how to store it. Moreover, haleem is one of those luscious plans which become essentially progressively delicious more than a few days after it’s been cooked.

Haleem can be taken care of in the fridge for unto 3 days in a fixed shut compartment.

If you have to store haleem more inaccessible than 3 days, by then it might be cemented as long as multi month in a fixed shut compartment.

Exactly when arranged to eat the haleem, essentially let it defrost at room temperature or carefully defrost it in the microwave. When defrosted, it will in general be warmed in a pot on the stove.
