Doug finished making the dal makhani today. It's a little wetter than ideal -- beans can be tricky to cook -- but quite tasty. Also it's kind of a pink color, rather than the darker reddish-brown I've often seen in restaurants. This may be due to using fresh tomato puree or who knows what other reason. We got one large container, four medium ones, and the bowl that Doug bailed out to eat immediately, which is a pretty good quantity. \o/ Success!
Later this week we plan to shop for the chicken makhani ingredients and test that.
