Indian Main Course

Dal Makhani Dip Recipe

0
78Min
Medium
Dal Makhani is a dish originating from the Punjab region of Peshawar. Became popular in India following partition. The dal gets its richness from the use of cream and butter, but can also be prepared with Yoghurt and Milk. It is now recognised as a quintessential Indian Dish. Traditionally cooked on dying ambers of a coal fire for more than 24 hours. This dal when poured over crispy lachcha parathas or nan with a dollop of butter needs no further accompaniments. For a quirky twist, cut your paratha or naan into strips and serve with the dal as a dip.
