Dal Makhani (Kali Dal)


1/2 cup sabut urad dal
1/4 cup rajma
2 onions finely chopped
1 tomato chopped
5 cloves garlic crushes
1 inch ginger grated
2 green chillies chopped
1 teaspoon cumin
4 teaspoons of oil
1/4 cup heavy cream
salt to taste
1 teaspoon paprika powder
1 teaspoon garam masala powder
2 teaspoons dhania jeera powder


Soak the urad dal and rajma overnight. In a pressure cooker, cook the dal and rajma with water and 1 teaspoon of oil upto 3 whistles

In a kadhai, add the remaining oil. When it is hot add the cumin seeds followed by garlic, green chillies and then onions. Be careful not to burn the garlic else it will become bitter. When the onion is golden brown, add the tomatoes and the ginger. Mix well and then add the dhania jeera powder, paprika powder, garam masala powder and mix well. Now add the cooked dal to this mixture. If the dal mixture looks dry add a little warm water to it to get the desired consistency. Bring to a boil and add salt to taste. Then add the cream and garnish with coriander leaves.

Dal is ready to be served with jeera rice, paratha or naan
