About this recipe: A favourite Punjabi dish, this rich dal is delicious on its own with roti or rice, or served as part of a spread of curry night delights.
Cooking beans or lentils in a pressure cooker can create foam, which may block the steam from properly releasing. To avoid this, use a large pressure cooker and ensure that it is not filled more than 2/3 full. Alternatively, cook the dal in a regular pan with plenty of water; keep at a steady simmer (not rolling boil) for about 1 hour, or until tender.
Fantastic I added 200g amul cream too! - 26 Jan 2013 (Review from Allrecipes India)
With all these spices, how could you go wrong with this recipe? This rich, hearty soup is delicious. The butter adds a smooth texture to the beans and tomatoes. Also, I love the excuse to use my pressure cooker. - 17 Jun 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
