There is an entire series of dishes that fall in the “makhani” category of cooking. The term basically translates to “buttery.” These elaborate party dishes are at the core of festive Punjabi cooking and are among the signature dishes of many Indian restaurants. My easy Basic Makhani Masala and Everyday Masala Paste along with regular black beans make this a very accessible indulgence.
