Dal Kabila
The mughals made use of all kinds of dals available to them to prepare mouthwatering dishes such as this one. Made with urad dal or split black lentils this dal is tempered with whole kashmiri red chillies that add the spiciness and colour. This dal should be eaten hot as it tends to become thick and mushy when cold. Also avoid going overboard with the cream as this too will lead to the texture of the dal turning sticky.
