  10. Nice recipe Jaya….Addition of chana dal to Dal Makhni is new for me, will definitely try. But may be because of the chana dal you got more of a yellowish colour to the dish in comparison to the blackish / dark brownish colour we usually find at home as well as in restaurants. Good one, Chana dal will add to the creamy texture as well…thanks for sharing.
