Hi,

Looks nice- By cup do you mean the measurement cup or a teacup and how much can this serve upto.

Thank you!

Anjum said...

With a cup I mean a tea cup and this serves about 4-5 adults.

Assalamualaikum anjum.. I made haleem today... Everything is perfect but it got over salty.. Can you please let me know how to fix the extra salt??

Anjum said...

Wlks, a better way to get rid of excess salt in any curry or food item is to make a small dough of wheat floor and drip in the curry. This will absorb the excess salt to a larger extent

Hope this helps
Anjum

Anjum said...

Anjum

Anjum said...

Hi Anjum. Very nice blog. Some great recipes in here.
One question on Haleem, when you say grind mutton, do we remove mutton from the masala and grind or grind the entire mutton masala mixture?

Anjum said...

Hi, its better to grind mutton with garam masala as this way the mixing of masala will better

sanober shaikh said...

Can i make dis recipe by using suji instead of whole wheat if yes what should be d quantity..and at what ahould be the procedure..please reply..jazakallah

Anjum said...

Dear sanober, u can use dalia( broken wheat) instead of whole wheat. For every 1kg of mutton use 1 tea cup of dalia, I suggest you also use some mutton with bone in this recipe, remember to discard the bones after condensing the muttonAlso add fresh ground cardamom powder in ur final step.

suji is something entirely different. and it can't be used in this recipe. the taste will be v dfrnt . u must use only broken wheat or whole wheat in this recipe. then only u can get the real yummy taste of it.
