Dal Amritsari

Dal Makhani is finger licking good .. I swear !!! But the amount of cream & butter in it can give you nightmares for sure ... But for a everyday meal, there is Dal Amritsari ... As creamy as Dal Makhani .. I swear ...

I got this recipe from a Sanjeev Kapoor cookbook ( Courtesy: My Dad :) ) & I really loved it .. The amount of proteins in this makes you want this more often .. Especially if you are a vegetarian like me.

Dal Amritsari

You Will Need:
  • 1 cup Sabut Urad Dal - with skin
  • 1/4 cup Chana Dal

  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp Ghee
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1/2 tsp Garam Masala
  • Coriander for garnish

How To:
