How To Prepare Urad-Rajma Dal Makhani?
First of all, you need to take one bowl of urad dal and one bowl of rajma.
Soak it for eight hours. And add eight to ten glasses of water and cook it in the pressure cooker until ten to twelve whistles. Or if you want to cook in the pan directly, it will take too much time, so I prefer to cook in the pressure cooker.
Now heat a pan and add three tablespoons of oil or butter. Butter adds a great strong aroma to food. If you are adding butter, be careful with salt as butter is a little salty.
Make sure that lentil and rajma are greatly cooked and soft.
Now in a pan, add
One spoon cumin seeds,
One dry red chili,
One bay leaf,
Half spoon Garlic ginger paste
One finely chopped onion.
Let it cook for some time. After the onion turns red, add tomato puree or finely chopped tomatoes. The number of tomatoes will be greater than the onions.
Add salt, turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander powder as per your requirement.
You can add black pepper powder as well.
Cook for some minutes and add cream or butter on top of it—Cook and taste how delicious it is.
Suppose you are cooking directly without pressure cooking it, then add ten cups of water and let it cook until it is soft. It will take more time, but it also tastes good. Always cook this recipe at a low flame.
Garnish with a bit of cream, mint leaves, or saffron.
Adding cream to this recipe makes it delicious, and you won’t even feel like you are eating home-cooked food. It tastes like tasty restaurant food.
So, urad dal makhani is a great choice to cook for dinner as it goes with brown rice or even roti. Lentil should be a little thick.
Urad-rajma dal makhani is made up of urad lentils, a very healthy and great source of fiber and protein. We even add rajma into this recipe to make it more tasty and nutritious, as rajma is also a great source of protein. It is easy to make and a great option to satisfy our tummy. So do cook it and enjoy the rich taste of lentil and rajma.
