  41. 41. Q13: The origin of India’s X goes back to an ancient Arab dish: the hareesah. There are records of it being consumed in the Abbasid Caliphate in the 8th century. The dish was simple but laborious to prepare: it involved boiling shredded meat, cooking it again with ground wheat all night in a tannur (or tandoor) and then, grinding this mixture to a smooth paste. This dish is still consumed in West Asia, Iran and in Hyderabad’s Arab quarter, Barkas. Once it reached India, the simple hareesah received some significant upgrades to suit desi palates. Spices were added, as also a variety of lentils. A new name was given to this dish: X, the Persian name for the bland wheat-and-meat hareesah. However, in 2019, owing due a sudden realisation that X shares its name with God as well, it saw a renaming to account for that fact that it is made of daal (lentils). Identify this signature dish popular during the month of Ramzan
