I asked Andrew what special treat he'd like me to cook for Valentine's Day this year, and he replied 'Dal Makhani'. A lentil curry ... how romantic!
We first tried Dal Makhani at the wonderfully-named Bollywood Masala in Dickson. It quickly became one of Andrew's favourite curries, so I decided to try making it. Turns out you can buy the perfect spice mix from Bharat International, along with the black lentils (urad whole) and red kidney beans required to make it.
I tend to make a double batch then stow meal-sized portions in the freezer for quick week day dinners. Serve with basmati rice or roti. Yum.
