Cheesy Haleem Toast


If you are in Hyderabad, Haleem is a must try dish during Ramadan season. Haleem is a delicious dish prepared using meat, wheat and spices along with a generous amount of ghee. It is usually served with lemon wedges and fried onions. A small bowl of Haleem will make your tummy full and gives an instant energy. Lots of vendors are famous here in selling Haleem in their unique flavour but my personal preferences are Pista house and Shah ghouse haleem. Every year, my leftover Haleem turns into Haleem Egg Dosa for breakfast and this year, tried an interesting cheesy toast using Shah ghouse Haleem. No doubt that as such the haleem gives a delicious rich taste but the richness got enhanced, when it was served as a toast along with Mozzarella cheese. This toast can be served as a breakfast or starter or evening snack along with Tomato sauce. Adjust the quantity of cheese and haleem according to your taste bud and being generous on both the ingredients will make your toast heavenly for sure :)


Ingredients :

2 Cups Haleem 
4 Bread slices 
2 Cups Mozzarella cheese, grated 
1/2 Cup Cheese, grated ( I have used Amul cheese cube in this recipe ) 
Chilli flakes 

Method :

Sprinkle mozzarella cheese evenly on top of bread slice and place it on a hot tawa. 

Simmer the flame and cook it for a minute or till the cheese starts melting. 

Using butter knife, spread the cheese all over the slice and top it with Haleem. 

Sprinkle grated cheese on top of the haleem followed by red chilli flakes. 

Toast it in a low flame till the base of bread slice turns crispy. 

Once done, remove from the flame and repeat the process for the remaining slices. 

Serve hot. 


Serving Option :

Serve with Tomato sauce.

Sankara Meen Kuzhambu / Red Snapper Fish Curry

Tangy and aromatic flavor of the curry along with a delicious taste of fish, when served with hot rice gives a joyous feeling for a FISH LOVER like me ;) This four letter word makes me drool any time and love it in any form of cuisine.
Generally Meen Kuzhambu is served with hot rice but it tastes more delicious and yummy when served with Hot steaming Idlis for the next day. The more the time, fish swims in the curry, the taste increases. Flavor of the Fish gets blend well with the curry and enhances the taste and aroma, when served it for the next day. 
Sankara fish has its unique taste and flavor and personally, I feel it gives delicious taste when prepared as kuzhambu than fry. Even few Restaurants started serving "Nethi Vacha meen Kuzhambu and Idli" in their menu.  

Are you a Fish Lover ?? Then get ready to Drool ;)

Ekadesi Kali

Happy Ekadesi Friends!

Vaikunta Ekadesi  is celebrated every year in the month of December or January and particularly on the 11th waxing moon that falls in the Margazhi month. Early morning of this day “the gate to Lord Vishnu 's inner Sanctum” is opened and in tamil we used to call it as “sorga vassal”. And according to our family culture, we used to fast on this  particular day by taking only tiffin items ( No rice allowed). Along with that, Kali is made as offering for god. And the next day of ekadesi is called as Dhuvadesi, on which fast is broken with the preparation of rice and curry with 21 vegetables. My mom prepares karakuzhambu with 21 veggies and according to my in laws place we prepare sambhar with 21 veggies.
