10 gm turmeric

0 salt as required

1 kilograms broken wheat

1 teaspoon kebab cheeni masala

How to make Kathal ka Haleem

Step 1

To make this delicious recipe, take a bowl and add ginger paste, garlic paste, turmeric and green chili paste. Stir the ingredients and marinate jack fruit into it and allow it to rest for at least 20 to 25 minutes.

Step 2

In the meanwhile, take a large pot and pour water into it. Add the marinated jack fruit into it and bring to boil. After the jack fruit is cooked, peel and shred it out into thin pieces. Keep it aside for some time.

Step 3

Over a medium to low flame, cook soaked broken wheat (dalia), green chili and kebab chini along with a appropriate amount of water in a wok. Stir well and blend to make a paste out of it. Keep it aside.

Step 4

In another medium sized vessel, preheat ghee for some time. After the ghee is hot enough, saute ginger, garlic and green chilli paste. Add shredded jack fruit, turmeric and red chili powder. Once the jack fruit turns brownish in colour, add curd. Cook the mixture until oil is separated. Then add the broken wheat paste (Step 3) into the mixture.

Step 5

Allow the entire amalgamation to cook until you get a consistency where it doesn't stick to the ladle. Once your dish is prepared, garnish with fried onions, cashew nuts, mint and fresh coriander leaves. Transfer the delight to a serving plate and enjoy hot.
