Amul Butter Dal

Few years back whenI was working, I had been to Nagpur for an audit,my station manager had bought a parcel for lunch from a small dhaba very famous for its amul butter Dal…minimal spices but amazing taste….served with crisp tandoori roti and brown rice….

A few days back I saw a reel by one of the food blogger about this Dal from Param da dhaba in Nagpur and I was immediately tempted to try it out… This recipe is from how he is making it in that video.

Trust me you will fall in love with these simple flavours….do give it a try.
