Dal Makhani, which literally translates to lentils cooked in butter is one of my favorite Indian comfort dishes.
It goes great with a spicy pickle, some jeera rice and naan.
It’s not exactly the healthiest meal that you’ve ever had, but hey, fuck it. You deserve to treat yourself from time to time!
The dish is made with split lentils and whole lentils like kidney beans and then is cooked down with butter, duh, and lots of spices and cream.
You’ll be LICKING your bowl clean!
This dish definitely takes some time to make, which helps bring all the spices together and cook the lentils down. Its mostly served for special occasions, or at a restaurant, but if you’re feeling indulgent, why not tonight?!
