Eat this dal makhani at Khanna’s Desi Vibes

The dal makhani at Khanna’s Desi Vibes is a traditional Punjabi dish that owner Pravin Khanna learned to make from his mother. Slow-cooked urad dal (black lentils) give the dal its deep, rich color. It’s flavored with tomatoes, garlic, onions and coriander powder that get a dose of richness from being cooked in butter and cream. Order butter naan to eat alongside this; its pillowy texture and mild flavor allow the dal to shine.
