  • Dal Makhani is traditionally made with black whole lentil
  • Dal Makhani is a popular Punjabi dish
  • You can make a ketogenic version of the popular recipe too

It seems that the whole world has woken up to the benefits of ketogenic diet, and the obsession is far from dying down so soon. A bunch of our favourite celebrities cannot get enough of it either. For all those who are wondering, ketogenic diet is a diet that encourages you to load up on fats (yes, you read that right) but there's a catch. While you are eating those fats, you are also supposed to cut down on your carb intake drastically. In the absence of carbs, your body starts burning fats and thus, you end up losing some kilos, according to experts. But keto diet does not suit many people, hence, it is always a good idea to consult a dietician first before you start.
