Dal Bukhara Recipe Step by Step | How to Make Dal Bukhara

A scumptious delicacy prepared with so much ease. Creamy and delicious Dal Bukhara Recipe.

Dal Bukhara Recipe… our favourite pick on the menu of ITC Rajputana. Till one day when here I found a blogger talking I mean writing about dal bukhara… ITC style. Well even if I wasn’t a fan of Dal Bukhara at ITC I would have tried this recipe because I am attracted to recipes which make a statement.

If you are regular at handfulofflavours you must be knowing the categories of recipes, i.e. the kind recipes such as malai pyaaz, the independent recipes such as pindi chole. Dal Bukhara falls in the category of independent recipes and it falls so badly that it breaks all its bones (emoji pad has a broken heart not broken bones). You know what I mean. And for those who don’t, I’ll explain. Independent recipes are the ones which do not keep calling us. They prepare on their own without any/much efforts from us. Yes, this Recipe of Dal Bukhara is a very independent. Not even a tadka (tempering) goes into it.

Dal Bukhara has a tomato base with the flavours of ginger and garlic and lots and lots of butter and cream. Yes and you cannot compromise on that. I am working on low calorie dal makhni… but with Dal Bukhara I am not even trying to make a low cal version. I guess if that’s done Dal Bukhara will lose what I love it for… its statement.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
