Harissa | Beef Harissa || How to make Harissa with step by step photos and video

Harissa is a traditional and delicious wholesome complete meal, originating from Kashmir it is a winter delight a perfect combination of meat and some lentils

It is a delicious combination of meat, rice, green lentil, and wheat. Harissa is very similar to haleem, but it has its own distinct taste that is different from haleem. Tempering with desi ghee and the addition of lemon juice makes it even more scrumptious. In some areas of our country people eat it with a spoon and in some places this is eaten along with hot naan, harissa can be served as a snack to the guest or in a dinner or lunch as well

My latest video Beef Harissa:


 


I used mutton meat instead of chicken for making korma and for making kabab used beef mince, you can also use beef and chicken I mixed beef kebabs with harissa it can be topped with fried kababs, brown onions, and coriander leaves 

  Recipe tips:
  1. To prepare this recipe use desi ghee if possible because desi ghee can enhance the taste of harissa
  2. Cook harissa in a nonstick pot to prevent burning from base
  3. Usually, mash dal isn’t added I added it because of bringing thickness in harissa like haleem
