Its a wonderful mixture of various lentils and very tasty with hot white rice. I add a dollop of low fat yogurt instead of the fresh cream to my plate for a lower cal option!

DAL MAKHANI (INDIAN LENTILS)

2022-06-14



Dal Makhani (Indian Lentils) image

Ever go to an Indian restaurant and wonder how they make those lentils? I hated lentils before I discovered Indian food. Then I scoured the internet to figure out how they achieved them, and through mixing and matching recipes and methods on videos, I've arrived at this recipe, which I think is pretty close. This version is very rich, but you can leave out the cream to make it lighter. Kasuri methi (fenugreek leaves) is almost impossible to find in the U.S., even in NYC, but it gives this dish something very special.
