Butter dal fry recipe, Rich & Creamy

Butter dal fry recipe, a rich restaurant style dal with cream, butter to take it to the next level. Full video, step by step pictures.

For me dal means simple in flavour and in terms of ingredients, preparation too. I have tried making dal with milk earlier but the method was not right. Some how always stuck to my usual dal fry. We all love how the dal makhani tastes, don’t we? Why, because of the considerable amount of cream and butter along with the goodness of the urad dal’s texture.

When Vj improvised his dal when I went to India alone last year, I never thought it would taste this good. Aj just loves it. He also makes sure to balance the spice so that it doesn’t taste bland, it is just spot on always. He have some un usual ingerdients anyways, like adding a sprinkle of sambar powder and a few pinches of fennel seeds powder, but at the end, it just turns so flavourful and delicious.

He uses mixture of toor dal and moong dal, but i used Organic Masoor dal from Wildseed.com, all the spice powders are also from them, it’s all so fresh and pure, flavorful.
