ABOUT Vegetarian Haleem RECIPE

Here is my version of a Vegetarian Haleem cooked in a pressure cooker. It is nutritious and wholesome with the presence of lentils, mixed veggies, dry fruits and oats. I made it even more healthier by adding very little ghee to the end product and using olive oil instead. This exotic dish can be had as a one-pot meal too with a dash of lime.
