You know how in love I am with my Instant Pot, right? It makes cooking lentils a lot easier for me because I get scared with the simple pressure cooker pot. My imagination always makes me think that it will blow up and blow me up too in the process.
Dal, or dishes made of lentils, are the easiest to cook for Indians, I think. They eat this almost every day.
I tried my luck in cooking this and made Masoor Dal which is brown lentils. I followed this recipe from And Then She Said blog because I found it the easiest.
How did it turn out?
I think it turned out very good. I am still waiting for the verdict of my taste-tester who I am sure would tell me that I should have added more salt (but I hate salty food!).
The only thing I did differently is that I pressure cooked the dal for 5 more minutes because the 18 minutes the blogger wrote in the instruction was not enough to make all the grains soft.
