Daleem (Haleem) Recipe Pakistani Food

A traditional dish on CookToFood 😉

You might have heard Pakistani people admire their food, daleem is one of those recipes. They make daleem in overnight, they stay conscious only to make this dish and serve it in the daylight. I was pretty impressed when I first heard this. I also wanted to know the ingredients and directions of this recipe. Why? because staying up for a night only to make this dish doesn’t it sound impressive?

Daleem (Haleem)

I found this dish well because it is made from legumes like split red lentil, split chickpeas, and split green gram. It is also made from porridge and as you know eating porridge in the morning is the greatest idea to start your day. Porridge is a light breakfast because it is low in calories and high in iron.

Fresh beef and yogurt are also added. Yogurt has many health benefits, it is also great for skin and hair. It has the solution to almost every problem.

The consistency and the taste of daleem is wonderful! Grab the ingredients we need and let’s begin!
