Punjabi Dal Makhani | Lachha Paratha

One of the most common meals in North India is Dal Makhani with Lachha Paratha. However, this is one combo which is often ordered at the restaurants or dhabas instead of being prepared at home. There are a number of ways of making dal makhani. On the blog itself, there are a number of recipes for dal makhani. But this recipe for dal makhani is my favorite. Although it calls for enough butter and heavy cream the taste is worth all the fat the goes in. Dal makhani tastes divine with rice or tandoori roti too, but if you can make perfect lachha parathas at home, nothing better than that! It is a crowd-pleaser combination so you can try making it at the next party you host. You can further add in any raita to this. However do not the onion lachha.

Here you go!

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!.
