This is a great dish for parties because it is so rich and creamy…This is a perfect dish to make your kids eat dal,since this one don’t taste like the usual dal recipe..Dal makhani means dals cooked in butter.(since makhani means butter)….But I used less butter and added some oil in this..If you want it to be very rich you could cook this entirely in butter..You could even skip the cream with milk..I hope you will make this now and tell me how it came…
