Dal Makhani:
Dal makhani is a treasured staple  food  from Punjabi’s Cuisine. This popular dish, which is available in every Indian restaurant, is rich in protein  &  tastes awesome and spicy. 
In this recipe, the black urad dal and red kidney bean is cooked on low heat in tomato puree and fresh cream. And I love  the rich creamy texture and  thick consistency.  This dish combines ideal with chapati, roti, naan or rice.
Enjoy this most characteristic signature dish of Punjab  now..!
