Add tomato, green chili paste and cream to this spice. Stir fry while stirring with a spoon until oil starts floating on the spices.
  5. Add the dal to this roasted spice when the cooker opens. If you want to keep the lentils thick or thin, then add water as required. After boiling, cook for 3-4 minutes, turn off the flame and add garam masala and half green coriander and mix. Dal Makhani is ready.
  6. Take out the Dal Makhani in a bowl, garnish with green coriander and butter. Serve hot daal makhani with naan, paratha, chapati, and rice and eat.


If you like onions and garlic, after roasting the cumin seeds, take a small cut of onion and 5-6 cloves of garlic or make a paste, after frying the cumin seeds in the ghee, add onion and garlic until it becomes light pink Fry and then make dal makhani after adding all the spices as mentioned above.

Instead of ground hot spices, the whole garam masala (8 black peppers, 3 long, 2 large cardamom peels, and 1-inch cinnamon slice) will be cured and roasted while frying the masala, the taste of whole spices is very good in dal makhani.
