Haleem is a traditional Ramadan special delicacy. Haleem is a stew which is made with various ingredients like mutton, broken wheat, urad dal, yellow moong dal, chana dal and spices. It is slow cooked to form a thick paste dish which is then topped with ghee and caramelized onions. 

We have made Haleem Ke kebabs which is made with the same base ingredients. Mutton on the bone is cooked along with broken wheat, urad dal, moong dal, ginger and garlic. 

Later meat is separated from the bones and pulsed to get a coarse mixture. It is added to a pan along with saffron, chillies, spice powders and dals and cooked to a thick paste. This mixture is then shaped into rounds and shallow fried to golden perfection. Make these Haleem Ke Kebabs and they will sure become a family favourite.
