Instant pot dal makhani, Instant pot Indian recipes

Dal makhani is a rich, creamy and dal based thick and yummy gravy that originates from punjabi cuisine. This gravy used 2 dal varieties in its making black urad dal and rajma which makes it protein rich and addition of butter and cream/milk  adds more taste to the dish and adds restaurant touch. I got to know about this dish after tasting in a restaurant in North Indian buffet, so every time when we get take out there this gravy is sure to be there because its too yummy. So I got this recipe from my North Indian neighbor and thought to share the amazing recipe with you guys in my blog, Thanks to her. First time time I made it pressure cooker dint get perfect taste so tried it making in INSTANT POT which turned the taste perfect so though to share this one first after correcting my mistakes in pressure cooker method. I served dal makhani with flavorful and easy to cook jeera rice and phulka. So lets get to the making!
