RED LENTIL DHAL IN A PRESSURE COOKER

I love the way this red lentil dhal made under 20 minutes turns into a smooth and creamy textured Asian flavoured delicious.  Another opportunity for me to use my so loved pressure cooker. It is an easy to make a dish that will eventually save you a lot of time and stress.

 You can add any veg you want from celery, carrot to okra or aubergine or just leave the fancy aside and make a basic dhal. Oil, onion, garlic, ginger, thyme, turmeric, cumin powder, lentils and water, boil in a slow cooker, pressure cooker or a pot and it’s ready. Serve with brown rice or roti.
