Its fascinating to me how foods take on hues from the regions they are in...which is what brings me to a dish near and dear to my heart. It is known as Haleem. This delectable dish, seems to have originated in erstwhile Persia and took on different flavors and ingredients as it made its way through the Indian subcontinent. The traditional Pakistani version consists of whole wheat grains, whole barley, lentils and shredded meat with a blend of spices that makes it a healthy, hearty and delicious meal. As you make your way down the Indian subcontinent to Hyderabad, it is common to see dry fruits like pistachios added to the wheat, barley, lentil and meat blend. Haleem is usually topped with finely chopped green chillies, julienne ginger and fried onions for the crunch. It can be had by itself as a porridge or you could use a paratha(Flaky Bread) to scoop up the delicious goodness
We make our Biryanis the traditional way in a batch with the rice layered into the meat/veggies and slow cooked in its own steam with a heap of love and patience thrown in. We recommend pre-ordering to reserve your own biryani serving.
