    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    This is a staple in my house on every Thursday. We all love this. This is my dad's second favourite lentil curry after Toor dal! I will be making this alot in the US while on my holiday! Hope you enjoy this as much as we do! You can cook the lentils in your pressure cooker in just 30 minutes! It turns out really wonderful! Enjoy!
