Dal Makhani prepared with the above portions will serve about four to six people accompanied by parathas, rotis, puris, nan or rice. This dal is rich in starch and minerals, it is also considered heavy for digestion and assimilation, however ginger solves this problem and makes it easy to digest. It is very good for growing children owing to its rich nutritive value.
