DAL BHUKARA RECIPE

Today i have for you all a delicious, rich and very creamy Indian Dal .. Dal Bukhara . Dal Bukhara is quite similar to the Dal Makhani  with a slight difference . In this , only black lentil ( urad dal with skin ) is used and no Rajma . Dal Bukhara recipe is very simple to make. Basically , a slow cooked black lentil simmered slowly in a onion tomato base till a velvety smooth texture is obtained .  Dal Bukhara tastes amazing with Naan / Roti / Jeera Rice .

Apparently , this dal came into fame through Bukhara restaurant of ITC Maurya, Delhi. Traditionally its slow cooked overnight on Tandoor to get that unique creamy texture and flavor . However , at home we alter few things based on our convenience .. but there is no compromise in taste . Each spoon is just yumm .. and if you have leftover for next day .. it’s more merrier . Served with some ghee on the steamed rice or Jeera rice or with piping hot phulkas, Dal Bhukara makes that perfect meal you are craving for! Do try and enjoy …
