Hi, In approximately 1980-85 I made a Persian dish that I got from a Minneapolis newspaper and I’d love to find one similar. It was chicken cooked in the oven and there were raisins on top but I don’t remember any other of the ingredients…just that it was very good. Does it sound familiar? I’d love to get a recipe for it. Thank you, Peggy
Some people use 2 or 3 kinds of lentil in making haleem …. from what I gathered from the Indian recipes. In Persian or Afghani haleem recipes lentil or chickpea is optional
