Creamy and buttery Dal Makhani is one of India’s most loved dal!

Dal makhni originated from the Punjab region of India. The primary ingredients are whole black lentils, red kidney beans, butter and cream. The dish gets its richness from the use of cream or butter, but it can also be prepared with yogurt, milk or no dairy.

INGREDINTS TO MAKE DAL MAKHNI:
1/2 cup gms Whole Black Urad dal
1/4 cup Rajma
1/8 cup Chana Dal

*Whole Spice Mix
1 – 1.5 tsp Salt (or as per your taste)

1 onion mid size
½ cup puree
½ – ¾ cup cream (add less)
½ cup butter

¾ tsp Amchur Powder or Mango Powder
½ tsp Ginger Powder or Sauth Powder
½ tsp Garam Masala

Boil chana dal separately first only if you want a smooth restaurant like dal

you need to grind Black Dal and Rajma otherwise the wont release to starch soon
