Method for the Halim Recipe

  1. Place the halim or haleem (garden cress seeds) in a glass or a deep bowl. Garden cress seeds are an excellent source of iron. Not only that, they are also rich in folic acid and many other vitamins.

Tarla Dalal    Halim seeds have phytochemicals which can be beneficial. However these seeds are also a source of protein, so it is wise to consult your doctor before use.

Can you make a batch of this and refrigerate overnight?
| Hide Replies
Tarla Dalal    No, we would not recommend storing overnight for 2 reasons - firstly because lemon juice might make the drink sour and secondly some amounts of vitamin C is lost on prolonged exposure to air.
