EASY Spinach Dal with Rice
Spinach Dal with Rice, a favorite Indian lentils soup with an easy dump and done Instant Pot recipe.
Add ghee, cumin, turmeric, green chili, garlic, curry leaves, tomatoes, lentils, salt, and water. Give a quick stir.
Place the tall trivet inside the pot. Add rice, salt, and water to the stainless steel pot and place it over the trivet.
Close the Instant Pot with pressure valve to sealing. Select Pressure Cook(Hi) and adjust the pressure cook time to 5 minutes. Allow 5 minutes of natural pressure release and then release the remaining pressure manually. Open the Instant Pot and carefully take out the rice bowl and the trivet.
Mix the lentils with a spatula. Add more water, to bring the lentils to desired consistency. Dal will thicken as it cools. Add chopped spinach and mix well. Cook on Sauté mode until the daal comes to a gentle boil.
- Substitute Masoor dal with moong dal or Toor dal. If using toor dal increase the pressure cook time to 10 minutes.
- You can also make dal without pot in pot rice.
