1 tbsp Sesame seeds,
¼ tsp Peppercorns, 
5 Green cardamom,

¼ cup Mint, Chopped,
¼ cup Cilantro, Chopped,
1 Lemon - for garnish,

4-5 tbsp Cooking Oil.


PREPARATION:
Grind the  Broken Wheat, Rolled Oats, Red Lentils, Whole Black Beans, Split Green Gram, Sesame Seeds, Peppercorn, Cardamom, Cloves, Cinnamon Stick & Black Cumin Seed into a coarse powder. This comes up to about 1 cup of powder. In a saute pan, heat 2 tbsp Oil and fry the chopped Onions on medium flame until Lightly Browned around the edges and caramelized, about 15-20 minutes. Set aside until ready to use. In a Pressure Cooker, heat 2 tbsp Oil, add the Chopped Nuts and fry until Golden. Next add the Slit Green Chilies and cook for 1 minute. Add almost all of the caramelized Onions, reserving some for Garnish, mix well and cook for 1-2 minutes. Next stir in mixed Vegetables and cook for 2 minutes. Drain and squeeze out the water from Soy Granules. Add this to the Pressure Cooker, mix well and cook for 1 minute. Add the Milk and scrape the bottom to pick up all the stuck bits. Simmer for 1-2 minutes. Add 3 cups of Water, Chopped Herbs, Salt and the Powder. Mix well to make sure that there are no lumps. Bring this mixture to a soft boil. Cover the Pressure Cooker and cook on medium-low flame for 15 minutes until everything is cooked through. Once the Pressure dissipates, open the lid and mash the mixture to get the Silky Smooth texture. VEGETARIAN HALEEM is ready to serve.  Serve hot Garnished with Chopped Herbs, Lemon Wedges and Sauteed Nuts on top.
