Kaali Maa Ki Daal

Kaali Maa Ki Daal also known in some parts as Daal Maharani  is a delicious and wholesome dish from north. For many years I used to believe that Punjabis only eat Kaali maa ki daal, Sarson ka saag and Makke di roti since I have many fond memories of having it at my friends house regularly.  Gone are those years of inncocence and now here I am preparing this daal in my kitchen.
 It is among one of my family favourites.This daal can be found in almost all the dhabas on the northern highway and is a hot favourite amongst the travellers.
This rich and creamy daal has a fantastic aroma and tastes best with roti .


Ingredients :

1 cup.....................Rajma (kidney beans)
1/2 cup.................Saboot urad
2..........................onions (finely chopped )
1tbsp...................ginger garlic paste
1 tsp...................garam masala
1 tsp................dhana jeera pd
1 tsp..................amchoor
1/2 tsp...........turmeric powder
1 tbsp...........chilly powder
2 tbsp ............oil
salt






Method :

Soak the rajma and urad overnight and pressure cook till very soft or about 5 to 6 whistles.
Heat oil in a pan and saute onions .
When they become golden add ginger garlic paste and fry till rawness goes.
Now add all the masalas and stir fry for 2 minutes.
Finally add the cooked rajma and urad , salt and cook covered for 5 to 10 mintues.
Serve with rotis with a dollop of butter or ghee.
