Dal makhani, a flavourful robust lentil preparation, is a celebrated delicacy from punjab. Rajma and whole urad provide protein and calcium which are extremely important for maintenance of your body cells and healthy bones. Cooking the dal in tomato purée adds a little sharpness to this dish and also enriches it with folic acid and vitamin a. Try this dal with methi makai ki roti, to make a satisfying low fat meal.

Dal makhani is liked by all my family members but as it is high in calories, I make it less frequently but this low-cal version is really great and with no compromise in taste it is really easy to make and healthier and delicious.
