Chicken Haleem with Oats

Oats haleem for Iftar today :)

So if you find yourself having left over chicken, what do you do? You make a soup or better yet, oats haleem with it!

Take out the bones from the chicken. If your chicken is in curry form, you don't need the following:
Ginger garlic paste,
Red chilli powder
If it's plain chicken, then add the above items and fry till onions turn soft.

If its' curry leftovers, you only need the following:
Lemon juice - to taste
Mint and Coriander leaves - chopped
Green chilli, finely chopped - to taste
Chicken stock - optional

Put the chicken into a pot, add the green chillies. Add chicken stock or water. One cup per person. Add coriander and mint leaves, lemon juice and salt if required. The chicken stock usually has sufficient salt in it.

Once the liquid boils, add the oats - about 1/2 cup per person, and allow to cook for 10 min. The consistency will be quite thick. Take it out of the stove and allow to cool. Then mash it up a little bit, and you will notice that it becomes a bit sticky in nature, haleem-style.

And thats it. Serve hot with fried onions and a wedge of lemon. Bismillah!
