Harees with Mutton Kheema/Arabic Ramadan Soup Harees
Arabic Recipe - Harees

Every year in the Month of Ramadan all Muslims prepare their own traditional food varieties for Iftar.
During Ramadan I used  cook varieties of kansji/soup/porriage Link ( Mutton kheema kanji, chicken kheema kanji, Veg Noombu kanji, Diet Noombu Kanji Cumin & Coconut Rice Soup,Hyderabadi Haleem, veg Soup, Spinach Soup Tomato Soup, Spicy Green Garden Soup. for iftar.

In Middle East countries especially U.A.E ,Saudi, for Iftar often they use to make their most famous traditional soup  Meat Harees or Chicken Harees with very light spices and less oil.

You can make side dish for Harees such as Chicken Baji orFalafil 
You can add burgal or oats instead of wheat.
