Daal Makhani

Dal makhani is a famous dish from Punjab. It is very healthy too. It is made from whole black grams (sabut urad dal) & kidney beans (Rajma). Previously it was cooked for a long time for nice test. But today I am telling you the simple version of it.

Black Urad dal whole - 2 cups
Rajma - 1 cup
Chopped tomato - 2 small
Chopped onion - 1 cup
Chopped garlic - 1 tablespoon
Chopped ginger - 1 tablespoon
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Red chili powder- 1 tablespoon
Garam masala - 1 teaspoon
Fresh cream - half cup
Butter - 50 Gms.
Oil - 1 tablespoon
Salt as per taste

Wash and soak black urad dal and rajmah overnight in water. Cook the soaked dal and rajma in water with salt, red chili powder and chopped ginger till dal and rajma are cooked properly. Heat oil and butter in a Kadai. Add cumin seeds, let it crackle. Add chopped onions and cook till golden brown in colour. Add chopped ginger, garlic and chopped tomatoes. Saute till tomatoes becomes soft and starts to leave the masala. Add boiled dal and rajma to this. Mix it wel. Add garam masala and cook at very slow flame for 10-15 minutes. Add fresh cream and let it cook for another 5 minutes. Serve hot with Roti, Rice, paratha or Naan.
