Green Gram Makhani

My green gram makhani served with some Indian style roti’s makes the perfect comfort meal for a cool night. The word “makhani” refers to “with butter” and the addition of butter in this dish gives it that perfect smooth finish whilst the double cream makes a rich curry base. I use a smoking method in this recipe using hot coal and butter to give it a smoky taste and take the dish to a whole new flavour level.
