Shahjahani Dal is made with Kabuli chana (Chickpeas). It is named after Emperor Shahjahan. Although the story behind this dal is quite tragic, the dal itself is super creamy and super tasty.
This dal is made with boiled and mashed chickpeas cooked in creamy gravy. It is then flavoured with aromatic herbs and spices. The addition of coconut milk makes it creamier.
The rich and luscious Shahjahani Dal tastes best with steaming hot rice or paratha.
