What Butter Chicken is to non-vegetarians, Dal Makhani is to vegetarians. It’s the most demanded and supplied item from the vast North Indian Cuisine and certainly most loved as well. We know there are hundreds of restaurants that must be serving good Dal Makhani in Delhi but you must visit these places for a good time and utterly butterly delicious Dal Makhni which is so hard to resist. (As recommended by fellow EatTreaters)

This beautiful five-star property at the ITC Maurya serves the best dal makhani in the whole capital, as many EatTreaters seem to believe. While you’re trying Dal Makhani at this fancy restaurant, you must try it with their special Naan Bukhara and also order Chicken Khurchan because it’s delicious. Everybody knows that any family dinner is incomplete without Dal and Chicken.

4. Moti Mahal Delux
If your family loves going out for dinners, this should be your ultimate place to go. And the best part about Moti Mahal Delux is that it has opened several little outlets in almost all the popular malls and important markets of Delhi. They have been in the market for quite some time now and keeps delivering the best possible taste in their Dal Makhani. It’s always fresh and Dal Makhani has all the right flavours that are needed in it. We’re also fans of their Paneer Lababdar and Hara Bhara Kebabs.
