Hello everyone
Haleem.... This one word brings a single thing in mind, that is non veg. But wait , here it's veg one. Yes , you heard right this is for veg fellows who ever wondered of it to taste but couldn't due to non veg . So here come easy but flavourful haleem recipe for all haleem lovers to try this for a change of taste.
Stepwise recipe is given below ,hope you all will give it a try, even non vegetarians too can try for a change 😊.


Serves: 5-6
Time 40 mins


2 cup soya nuggets , soaked and ground
3 tbsp Dalia ( broken wheat) , soaked
1/2 cup barley or red lentil( masoor dal), soaked
2 onions, finely chopped
3-4 green chilies, broken in half
1 1/2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp coriander powder
2 tsp Kashmiri red chili powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp cumin powder
20 almonds + 4 cloves, powdered together
3/4 cup thick curd ( yogurt), beaten
1/4 cup mint and coriander leaves( equal ) , finely chopped
2 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp oil
1 tsp ghee or butter


Heat oil and ghee in a wok, add chopped onions and green chilies. Fry till transparent then add ginger garlic paste and sauté for 2 mins. Now add turmeric powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, garam masala, chili powder and cinnamon powder, add some water to avoid burning spices. Fry till it starts leaving edges of the wok and nice aroma comes. 

Now add ground soya nuggets and sauté for 3-4 mins then add soaked Dalia and lentil. Add sufficient water and salt, cover it and let it cook till nice soft and cooked.

 Now add almond clove powder and beaten curd. Adjust water and Let it boil . 

Add chopped mint and coriander leaves and lemon juice, adjust salt .Simmer for 5 mins and done.

Garnish it with chopped coriander leaves or fried onions and serve with roti, naan or rice.
I used red lentil in it but if you have barley then go for it otherwise lentil too give a delicious flavour and texture to the dish.

It's a protein packed healthy veg substitute to traditional non veg haleem..hope you all will definitely give it a try and pour your valuable comments and suggestions here , they meant a lot.

Happy cooking....
