    3. 3
      Peel and chop the onion, ginger and garlic finely. Also chop the tomatoes.
    4. 4
      Heat oil and butter in a thick-bottomed pan. Add cumin seeds, when it crackles add chopped onions and fry till golden brown.
    5. 5
      Add chopped ginger, garlic and chopped tomatoes. Sauté till tomatoes are well mashed and fat starts to leave the masala. Add boiled dal and rajma to this.Do not add the liquid at first.Crush(mash) the dals with the back of the ladle while stirring continuously, this gives that creamy texture to the dal .
    6. 6
      Add the liquid and some water if required and simmer on very low heat for fifteen minutes.
    7. 7
      Add fresh cream and garam masala powder let it simmer for another five minutes. Finish off with a couple of pinch of Kasoori methi powdered.
    8. 8
      Serve hot with Naan or Paraatha.
    9. 9
      Tip: Replacing the tomatoes with 4 tablespoons of thick tomato paste will enhance the taste and colour of the dish manifold.

      This was a great recipe and one that I now incorporate into our regular rotation. We are vegan so I replaced the butter with vegan margarine and the cream with Belsoy (a soy-based cream. Delicious for the whole family! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

      This is an excellent and delicious dish. For my vegan friends I use coconut milk instead of cream and olive oil instead of butter. I also add about a teaspoon of cinnamon. If you love onion, like I do, add a couple more onions and cook them until they are brown and caramelized.

      This is a great, easy to make dal! I followed the recipe exactly; no changes were necessary or desired. Made for PAC Fall 2008. Thanks again, Udita, for another lovely recipe!
