Information

If you’ve never tried Makhani Daal, you’re in for a treat. It’s made with black lentils that are actually whole, tiny black beans, which - when cooked slowly - plump up into creamy flavourful nuggets of deliciousness.

This daal is a restaurant staple and a real favourite in India. It is simply flavoured with tomatoes, simple spices, ginger and garlic for a deep rich, slightly smoky flavour and a little cream and butter for that signature richness. It is absolutely delicious, some might say addictive, so be warned! It’s a fantastic meal to keep on hand in your cupboard for busy days. Perfect for vegetarians or meat-free days.

OUR PERFECT Delhi Black Makhani Daal

For added heat and extra flavour, add 2 green chillies, pricked with the tip of a knife, into the oil after frying the whole spices and fry for 30 seconds before adding in the lentils.

Add the tarka sauce and lentils and bring to a simmer.

Finish with chopped fresh coriander.

For added flair, fry 10g of julienned ginger until golden and use to garnish along with a swirl of cream.
