I heard a lot about this dish in past few months and started to research. As I never tasted it before, so I went to an Indian restaurant in Austin named 'Bombay Bistro' and tasted their 'daal bukhara'. Oh my god, it was lip smacking good and then I realized why this dal is so famous. Texture of the dal really impressed me a lot. The authentic recipe is very simple and easy but main trick here is the cooking time. The more you cook, the more texture and taste you will get. I made this dal along with butter naan and the combo was heavenly. Try this in your kitchen and let me know how it turned out.
