Chef Ranveer Brar presents classic Dal Makhani in a mesmerizing video in which he talks about this recipe’s origin. According to the chef, Dal Makhani’s story started with three friends from Lahore (Pakistan) – Kundan Lal Jaggi, Thakur Das Maggu, and Kundan Lal Gujral who migrated to Delhi after the partition of India.
There they opened a restaurant – the famous Moti Mahal and one dish that they created in that restaurant was Dal Makhani. Today, it is one of the most ordered items in Indian restaurants all over the world.
Chef Brar’s recipe calls for the use of massive amounts of butter. However, I encourage you to use a vegan substitute of butter such as cashew butter, olive oil, coconut milk, etc. For more on vegan Dal Makhani, please read my article: Vegan Dal Makhani With A Simple Trick
