Hi all,
The video, as always is excellent.
However, the ingredient quantities mentioned here are off.
I managed to use a guesstimate and still make some kickass Haleem.

I have been watching vah re vah since last 3 years and it is getting better and better. I love my brother Sanjay Thumma and I am from the same place as he. He is the best ever cook I have ever watched. Even if the dish is not so good but the way he cooks and presents makes him the dish taste excellent. I love cooking and fully agree with him that when you cook you should cook with your mind and heart in. One more thing I have practically experienced, I start cooking when I am very hungry as it puts an extra effort to cook the dish and tastes better. I hope Sanjay agrees with me.
May god guide and bless Sanjay Thumma.
Regarding the hyderabadi haleem, it was one of the best of his preparations.

Keep healthy and continue your good & noble work.

My Best Regards
