Mr. Ali challenged the proprietors of the joints to prepare the Haleem themselves instead of using cooks and chefs, Mr. Mirza All himself can prepare the Irani Haleem which is far more nutritious and hygienic than any other haleem in the city. They follow the traditional age-old recipe of Iran which requires ample patience and devout efforts to prepare the dish as per the traditional recipe. The Original Irani Haleem may look tasty and easy but the amount of hard work that goes into the preparation of Original Irani flaleem is laborious. The whole process consumes 9 to 10 hours; it begins early in the morning at 4'o clock. They won't compromise on the quality front, right from choosing the ingredients to serving the dish in hygienic disposable plates / containers.
The ingredients that go into Sarvi Irani Haleem are as follows; they only use the meat of male goats and prepare our own ghee from the butter sourced from the local dairy farms. Top quality wheat, basmati rice, dry fruits and pulses are finalized after testing the sample from the prominent grain markets of the country over a period of 3 months before the month of Ramazan. To top all aroma has to fall in its place, this is achieved by using their in-house `potli' masalas to add flavour and taste to the dish. All this hardwork is meant to keep alive the traditional recipe and also to avoid any slightest chance of adulteration, which may affect the overall quality of Sarvi Irani flakes.
