Lentils are simmered with tomatoes and loads of spices in this thick and buttery dal makhani that'll satisfy your craving for Indian food. Serve as a side or with rice for a vegetarian dish.
Very tasty! I didn't have the chili powder, cayenne or fresh tomatoes, so substituted a can of pureed tomatoes and red pepper flakes. Served with garlic naan. Looking forward to the leftovers! For the reviewer who said this is not a soup, that's right - this dish isn't meant to be a soup, either. Don't try to thin it. And for those who think it's too sweet, tradionally, makhani has a definite sweetness to it. This was a great hearty vegetarian meal for a cold night ?? - 02 Dec 2018 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Too much cinnamon, it overpowered the other spices way too much. Though the author did say she enjoyed a sweet dal so that's to be expected. For a spicier Dal I use 1/2 Tbs Cinnamon and then 2 Tbs Cayenne and chile powder. Other than that the texture was great, it was very fragrant and a lot of fun to make! I substituted lemon juice instead of lime. - 09 Sep 2018 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
We loved it! I left out the sugar since I don't like sweets. I also cut down on chilly because my son wouldn't eat it. it was still delicious! - 17 May 2018 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
