Oats haleem - Guest post for Maha's lovely home

Today is a really special day for me .Ask me why? this is the first guest post by me since I have started blogging .This guest post is for none other than my friend Usha rani who blogs at Mahas lovely home .I came in contact to usha through  common friends on fb .A humble lady juggling between motherhood and blogging . Usha has invited for guest posts as apart of her 3 anniversary celebrations of the blog.I contacted Usha and she readily accepted for it and here I am with this today .Thank you once again Usha for the opportunity.

Coming to today's recipe"Haleem " is generally made with wheat .where in  wheat and meat are cooked together along with spices .Traditionally it is cooked over night ,but in this fast paced world,where every thing we prefer to be instant ,this recipe adds to the list of instant(s) . Though the process and the ingredients seem to be lengthy ,but the end product will be worth it ,i can vouch it !!! 

Hop on to  ushas space, Mahas lovely home to see the complete post .........

or check out the recipe below....


  • 800 gms Mutton/మటన్ 
  • 4 Green chillies/మిరపకాయ 
  • 1 tsp pepper corns(black)మిరియాలు 
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds / jeera/జీలకర్ర 
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric /పసుపు 
  • salt to taste

    • 80 gms / 1/2 cup moong dal(yellow) /green gram / పెసరపప్పు 
    • 1 cup /125 gms instant oats
    • 1 onion/ఉల్లిపాయలు 
    • 1 (big) / 120 gms tomato /టమాటాలు 
    • 2 tbsp ginger garlic paste/అల్లంవెల్లుల్లి పేస్టు 
    • 1/2 tsp red chilly powder/మిరపకాయ పొడి 
    • 1/4 tsp turmeric/పసుపు 
    • 1 tsp garam masala/గరం మసాలా 
    • 4 tbsp oil/నూనె 
    • 2 tbsp ghee/నెయ్యి 
    • salt to taste

        fried onions/వెయించిన ఉల్లిపాయలు 
      • coriander  leaves/కొతిమీర 
      • mint leavesల/పుదినా ఆకులు 
      • lemon /నిమ్మకాయ 



      1. Add all the ingredients 1 to the pressure cooker ,add water as required and pressure cook it for 1 whistle on high ,and 3-4 whistles on medium heat .
      2. Allow the pressure to leave on it self ,after cooling separate the bones from the cooked mutton with your hand and slightly  process it in a processor .
      3. Mean while dry roast the oats in a pan ,cool it and grind it to a powder .
      4. Cook the moong dal until mushy and set aside.
      5. In a heavy bottom sauce pan or a big kadhai add oil and ghee .
      6. To it add onions and cook it until brown ,add tomatoes and cook until soft.
      7. Now add all the other spices and bhuno(saute)  it until oil leaves the sides of the pan .
      8. Add the chopped mutton ,moong Dal(cooked),and 750 ml of water .
      9. Make a slurry of the oats (powder) and add it to the water mixture .
      10. Mix it well ,and now you can see that the mixture will begin to thicken as it cooks.
      11. Cook it for 3-4 minutes and switch of the flame 
      12. Serve it by garnishing it with pudina, coriander,lemon. 


      1. You can use boneless mutton too ,but i prefer bone in since the juices of the bones adds extra flavour to the dish .
      2. You can replace it with chicken , but I strongly recommend mutton .
      3. we are making a slurry of the oats powder to avoid any lumps .
      4. You can grind moong Dal in a blender  to a paste too .
      5. if needed more water can be added ,as it entirely depends on the oats, i have used Quaker oats.
