This is also one of the easiest and very exclusive recipes I have ever tried.  In this recipes basically you do every step at very large intervals.. :) Ah confused ??  Here you go with the recipe and enjoy cooking.





Whole urad dal
Ingredients:
Whole urad dal - 2 cups (Ensure the black skin is there)
Rajma  - 1/2 cup

Tomato Paste - 2 tspn
Ginger paste - 2 tspn
Garlic paste - 2 tspn

Heavy Cream - 1 cup
Butter - 1/2 cup
Kasoori methi - one hand ful
Salt to taste

Method:
1) Soak Whole urad dal and rajma over night or for atleast 8 hours.
2) Now, in a heavy bottom vessel add enough water to the soaked urad dal and rajma and bring it to a boil on high flame.
3) Take off the broth that floats up and add salt and simmer the dal till it cooks (It would take around 3-4 hours)
4) Make sure you are giving it a quick stir once in half an hour, so the dal does not stick to the bottom.

6) After 5 min add Jeera powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, chilli powder and give it a good mix.
