How to make the Sultani Dal
Wash and pressure dal till mushy.
Whisk curd and mix cream and milk together in a bowl.
Heat a kadai with oil, add bay leaf, then add the cream mixture. Mix and then add the dal
Next add the green chilli, red chilli powder, salt and garam masala. Cook for 8-10 minutes.
Temper it with chopped garlic and cumin seeds.
Garnish with coriander leaves.
This is part of the Awadhi Thali
This recipe requires coal and betal leaf on which ghee is poured. The coal is removed after few mins. I skipped this step. I think the smoky effect of the coal will be missed if you skip it. However the dal was very much liked as such because it was so creamy and rich.
