【印度王后炖豆】Dal Maharani

这道“王后炖豆” 名字其实有点哗众取宠,它是相对印度另外一款很有名的炖菜“奶香炖杂豆Dal Makhni”而言取的名字。


Dal Maharani is a close relative to another famous Indian lentil stew "Dal Makhni". Generally speaking, Makhni stew is considered a royal delicacy, and is often served at festive or celebrations time. 

Dal Maharani literally means "The queen's lentil stew", it is probably named as such in comparison to the famous Dal Makhani, though very similar, Dal Maharani has its own distinct flavor and is simpler in terms of ingredients and preparation.

1/3 杯 大红豆 (Rajma/kidney beans)
1/3 杯 眉豆 (Lobia/Black-eyed Peas)
