Make Dal Makhani, An Easy Lentil Stew | Quarantine Cooking

Nik Sharma, author of the new cookbook “The Flavor Equation,” is at home making dal makhani, a creamy lentil stew that comes together with help from some simple pantry ingredients.

He packs in flavor with ghee, onions, ginger, and garlic, plus turmeric and cayenne pepper for heat. A touch of cream tops off this surprisingly simple dish. Check out the recipe here:
