How to make Low Calorie Dal Makhani:
Wash both kidney beans and whole black lentil and soak them overnight.
In the morning, put them in the pressure cooker, along with water.
After the cooker whistles 5 times, turn the knob to simmer and continue to cook for 25- 30 minutes.
When cooked, allow them to cool.

For Masala
Take a pan/ heavy-bottomed kadai and heat oil in it. Add chopped onions and saute, till they get golden brown.
Add ginger, garlic, tomatoes, red chili powder, salt, turmeric powder and green chilies and saute it till the masala thickens.

For Dal Makhani
Add the cooked dal and ½ cup water (to dilute) to the cooked masala mixture and cover it with a lid.
Stir it occasionally and cook it for 25 - 30 minutes on low heat. The dal will gradually thicken.
Garnish it with low-fat cream and chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with chapatti and rice.
