    veggieGwen's Note:

    I call this double dhal because it has two different types of pulses and both sweet and regular potatoes. The method and seasoning are based on Moong-Chole Ki Dal, by Usha Rana which can be seen in its original form here: The main change was to include the potatoes because I wanted a whole meal in a pot. I also trebled the recipe so I could freeze it off in batches. I have a fairly big pressure and this lot barely fit so if you have a small one, maybe halve the recipe.

      Sadly my pressure cooker was out of order when I made this, but it turned out really nicely. The blend of two pulses and two tubers makes for a great dish.
