Dal Makhni

Dal Makhni the first dish that comes into our mind when we go to a north indian restaurant or a dhaba , the yumminess of this dish comes with the whole lot of butter in the dal.
I always thought its very difficult to make dal makhni , but after Vah Chef gave us this easy version of the recipe I don't have to go to a restaurant or a dhaba anymore to eat this , i can enjoy a nice bowl of dal makhni with soft parathas in my house anytime i want to.
I did i major change to this recipe that is i used a tin of black beans instead of dry black urad dal , the taste was the same just for convenience i used the tin , so friends click here for the tasty dal makhni video and enjoy the dish
