Good Food - Daal Makhani

This is one recipe that I can gorge on any day / anytime !!!

  • Take a small bowl of Lentils (Kaali Daal) and half bowl of Kidney Beans ( Rajma) and soak them overnight.
  • Chop an Onion, 2 Garlic cloves, 1 Ginger piece, 1 Green Chilly together
  • In a cooker, heat some oil and fry the above ingredients, along with a piece of cinnamon, 1 brown cardamom, a bay leaf & a teaspoon of cumin seeds
  • Once the contents turn alight brown, add a teaspoon of turmeric powder( haldi), salt, half teaspoon coriander powder (dhaniya powder) & half teaspoon garam masala
  • Add Daal , Rajma & close the cooker now and let daal boil
  • Once boiled completely (both daal and rajma become very soft), add a small bowl full of whipped cream
  • Blend with a laddle and let it cook for another 2 mins.
  • Serve hot

Combines best with: Naan, Tandoori Roti, Roomali Roti, Rice
