- Soak wheat, barley and gram lentil in plenty of water overnight. You can soak other two lentils as well but I normally soak them in the morning just for 1 hour.
- Now cook all lentils in a large pot with at least 12 glasses of water (I usually cook them in cooker because in my area lentils and meat take a lot of time to tender ).
- In a large pot add oil 1 cup and sliced onion, fry till golden brown, then add ginger garlic paste and all other spices. Add meat and cook for 10 minutes.
- Now add water and cook till meat is tender. Shred meat and grind lentils, then mix them both and cook on low flame.
- Use wooden masher for mashing and mixing all ingredients.
- Cook till required consistency is achieved.
- Now in a small pan heat up ¼ cup oil and one sliced onion and fry till golden brown, pour this over Haleem (this is a bhagar)
- Serve with all garnishes and enjoy this all time favorite dish…
Few years ago I experienced saji in Karachi in a restaurant just opposite of Expo center. It was a memorable dinner for me as my brothers and my mother were all togather. I can’t forget the taste of that sajii and also the gathering of our family. It was so delicious and masala which they sprinkle on it was wonderful. So I decided to make my own version of saji and share with you guys. I hope you will like it.
