Haleem has been around for centuries and is still one of the most popular dishes in the world. This amazing dish is made with wheat, barley, lentils, and meat (usually beef or mutton), sometimes with ghee (clarified butter) or other oils. Regional variations include the addition of spices, such as cumin, coriander, ginger, and green chilies.

A bowl of haleem is packed with healthy nutrients. It is a great source of protein and fiber,  making it a healthy option for those looking for an alternative to traditional meat-based dishes. It is filling and can be enjoyed as a main meal or as a side dish at any get-together, or parties.

Making haleem at home can be excrutiating, it is a long, multi-step process. However, with various easy to cook haleem mixes, making haleem at home is easy peasy now.

Easy to Cook Haleem Mixes

National Quick Cook Haleem

DISLIKE

  • No information on additives or colorants

National quick cook haleem costs about the same as Shan and serves about 5 servings per packet. I tried this quick-cooked haleem mixed blend at my last dinner party. It is moderately spiced and is not pre-ground so can be blended as per preferences which I liked about this spice blend.

Mehran Haleem Mix Easy Cook

DISLIKE

  • Shorter shelf life

Mehran haleem mix is an easy dish, serving 6 people. I tried this blend to distinguish the difference and found that it is not pre-grinded, yet easy to cook. It has a strong essence flavoring, but the only complaint I have is that it has a comparatively shorter shelf life.

Shan Easy Cook Haleem Mix

DISLIKE

  • Limited packaging options
  • Pre-grinded mix

Haleem is one of my favorite dishes but making haleem meant gathering multiple spices and grains from all different cabinets. Thanks to Shan, making haleem is effortless for me now. Shan's easy cook haleem mix comes with pre-grinded grains, and a blend of spices. It is made with only the finest ingredient set. With 5 servings per packet, it has clear instructions written, and can be cooked without gathering a million other spices or grains.

Haleem Recipe Mixes

Besides easy cook or quick cook mixes, there are haleem recipe mixes available in the market.These contain spice blends and do not come with wheat and lentil packet mixtures.

I find quick-cook blends easier to cook since it saves me the hassle of gathering and measuring multiple grains. However, some people prefer cooking their haleem in a certain way or with certain grains such as oats, for them these blends are a considerable option.
