Method

  1. Grind the ingredients Broken wheat to Jeera from the list (a total of 12 ingredients) into a coarse powder. This comes up to about 1 cup of powder.
  2. In a saute pan, heat 2tbsp oil and fry the chopped onions on medium flame until lightly browned around the edges and caramelized, about 15-20 minutes. Set aside until ready to use.
  3. In a pressure cooker, heat 2tbsp oil or ghee, add the chopped nuts and fry until golden. Next add the slit green chilies and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add almost all of the caramelized onions, reserving some for garnish, mix well and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Next stir in mixed vegetables and cook for 2 minutes.
  6. Drain and squeeze out the water from soy granules. Add this to the pressure cooker, mix well and cook for 1 minute.
  7. Add the milk and scrape the bottom to pick up all the stuck bits. Simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  8. Add 3 cups of water, chopped herbs, salt and the powder. Mix well to make sure that there are no lumps. Bring this mixture to a soft boil.
  9. Cover the pressure cooker and cook on medium-low flame for 15 minutes until everything is cooked through. Once the pressure dissipates, open the lid and mash the mixture to get the silky smooth texture. I like mine a little chunky, so skipped this step, but traditionally haleem is served smooth, so choice is yours.
  10. Serve hot garnished with chopped herbs, lime/lemon wedges and sauteed nuts on top.
