More often than not, every great Iftar is synonymous with haleem. A stew dish often prepared in the Middle East, Central Asia, and the Indian subcontinent, haleem is a rich blend of cereals, wheat, dairy, vegetables, and minced meat. Known and adored around the world for not just its deliciousness but also its high nutritive value, haleem is the perfect balance of health and taste. If that isn’t enough to make you rush to the nearest Ramadan night market, here’s a few reasons why you absolutely have to give haleem a try.
- Choices galore
Apart from the traditional haleem, haleem can also be made with different variations to suit varying fitness needs. For instance, diet haleem is the go-to meal for foodies that also aspire to stay in great shape. Vegetarians don’t need to feel left out either. Vegetarian variants of haleem include ingredients like soya chunks, curd, coriander, and an assortment of veggies.
- ‘H’ for huge amounts of energy
With its perfect balance of meat/veggies, spices, dairy, and pulses, haleem is a delicious stew of carbohydrates, protein, calories, and fibre. Not only will this leave your palate singing with joy, but also have you zipping with a boost of energy that’ll last the entire day.
- It actually keeps you younger!
Rich in antioxidants, haleem is a delicious way to stave off the effects of ageing. A bowl of haleem will leave you feeling young, looking young, and living young – leaving you with a child like grin with every spoon.
- Our ancestors loved it!
Haleem was a gift to Indian civilisation from the Mughals, and was soon assimilated into our diets once we realised how delicious it really is. Centuries later, haleem continues to make history to this day, as different variations of this beloved dish continue to make their way into our palate. Who said we shouldn’t allow history to repeat itself?
- More than just mutton
While haleem is most commonly prepared with minced mutton and its marrow, haleem also tastes delicious when made with fish or chicken. There’s room for everyone when it comes to relishing one of the most delicious dishes this country has ever seen.
