I made this a few days back. I substituted the molasses with brown sugar. I did not know what apple cider is, so, I had to omit that. But, I used 1/2 + 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar instead. I did not use fresh ginger at all(to be honest, I was too lazy to chop it that day). I cooked the lentils in about 6 cups of water + 3 cups of vegetable stock upto 4 pressure cooker whistles. The rest, I followed the recipe. Served it over hot Basmati rice and it was well loved by all at home. Thank U for sharing it. Its a great lentil recipe u got :)
