Hyderabadi Haleem is a one-dish meal , which has gained international acclaim.

In Hyderabad, the dish is an indispensable part of celebrity events like weddings, and is consumed especially during Iftaar, the evening meal following the day-long fast observed by Muslims during the month of Ramadan .

This is so because Haleem is a high-calorie dish that gives instant energy. Here is a vegetarian version of the energy and flavour packed Hyderabadi delicacy.

Packed with broken wheat, a range of lentils, vegetables and spices, the Hyderabadi Veg Haleem is self-contained in flavour and texture and ideal to serve as a one-dish meal.

A garnish of deep-fried onions and mixed nuts adds to the crunchiness and flavour of this dish, also giving it a masaledar aroma instantly.

Try your hand at making other Hyderabadi delicacies like the Char Dal ka Dalcha and the Bakar Khani Naan .
