Hareesa is originally from Middle East. Now, it has also become a part of Pakistani food as well. Hareesa is cooked just like haleem but it has porridge like texture. It is glazed with desi ghee. It is a nourishing dish and eaten in Aftaar in middle east countries as it keeps the body more energetic. Punjabis like to have hareesa in winters because it keeps the body warm and nourished.
