Instant Pot Dal Makhani (Butter Lentils or Lentil Makhani)

 

So it is obvious that I have a deep love for lentils. I also love Indian Butter Chicken – it is one of my favorite dishes ever. I always choose it at Indian restaurants or ask my husband to make it for my birthday – YUM! LOVE it! I decided to make it with Lentils and it was equally as yummy!

As I’ve said many times, lentils do not photograph well! But they do taste delicious! Easy to make and always delicious.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup lentils
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped or grated
  • 1 bay leaf (optional)
  • 6 minced garlic cloves
  • 1.5 inch ginger, minced or finely grated or 1.5 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp garam┬ámasala
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp tumeric
  • 1 tsp salt
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 14oz can diced tomatoes
  • 3 cups of water
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • Serve with Naan and warm rice

 

Directions:

Place all the ingredients, except the cream, into your instant pot.  Set the beans setting for 20 minutes.

I allowed the pressure to release naturally, and this is what I saw when I opened the pot

Remove the bay leaf. Then stir in your cream and it will look more like this:

Yum!! Serve with some Naan and rice!
