  • 1 whole Tomatoes (roughly chopped)
  • ½ cup Red lentil or Masoor Dal
  • 1 tablespoon Tamarind paste
  • ½ teaspoon Turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt

  • 1.25 cup Water

Ingredients for the tempering

  • 1 tablespoon Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Mustard seeds

  • Add water and let it come to a quick boil.
  • Put on the lid and set the Instant Pot to manual Pressure Cook mode for 8 minutes, making sure that the valve is in the sealing position.
