Daal Makhni

Daal Makhni

Like Daal-Chawal, Anna-Tovve belongs to comfort foods, Dal Makhani fits perfectly with Jeera Rice.

Dal makhani is punjab delicacy. Dal makhani with Jeera rice is great combo.
I was introduced to this combo from my North Indian friend.

Its called as Dal Makhani as it is made with Dal ( Rajma and Black Gram) and Makhan (White Butter) and whole milk cream. Its rich in calories and with rich proteins and fiber.

You need to have:

1 cup Urad daal(Whole blackgram)
1/4 cup Rajma (Kidney beans)
1-2 tblsp Butter (
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
2 green chillies,
1/2 tsp Haldi (Turmeric)
1 tsp Red Chilli powder 1-2 tsp
Garam masala powder
1/4 cup fresh cream
Fresh Coriander leaves
1 tsp Garlic paste 1/2 tsp Ginger paste
1 medium sized onion,
chopped2 tomatoes


Soak the Urdad, Rajma overnight. Pressure cook them and keep aside.

Heat the oil in a kadi or frying pan.
Add the cumin seeds. onions and tomatoes. fry till they turn translucent. Put in the green chillies and ginger, garlic paste and fry for some more time. Add the Haldi.

Now put in dals, salt, red chilli powder,coriander powder and Garam Masala. Mix well, cover and cook on low flame for 15 min .Add fresh cream nd mix well.
