hi Tara. I live in a hostel and I don''t have a pressure cooker to go with my induction stove. Can I do this on a normal bartan? How long do I have to cook it for? Please reply, thank you

Tarla Dalal    Hi Sarah, you can cook the dal, in a normal utensils by covering it with the lid, and remember to keep stirring in between, to avoid sticking at the bottom. Do give us your feedback, once you have tried the recipe..

What a wonderful dal prepared by using regular ingredients. No one can say that it is a zero oil recipe as it tastes just amazing. I often prepare this dal to have a controlled diet and I am 100% satisfied with it.

I love to see yr recipes when I get chance, specially because they r vegetarian, healthy, easy looking in preparation, & I tried them once a while. I make this one due to tuver dal which can give more protein in my diet, mild but tasty & very easy to make. I make this dal on weekends in double/triple amount so I can have it ready during week to go with rice, but I have been using cumin & oil to sauté onion, so I think it may taste better when I eat cold/microwave from refrigerator during weekdays. & I also do not whisk, just stir to leave it thicker to refrigerate. (I am working woman) Thanks for your videos & healthy recipes, I would love to have suggestions from you for other easy healthy recipes that I can make in weekends but still taste better when I use out of refrigerator on weekdays. Thank you again.

A quick dal which is without oil and not too much spice too, but the addition of onions, garlic and tomatoes perks up the flavour very nicely. In all a tasty treat.
