Pressure-cooker Dahl

The pressure cooker has become an essential part of feeding 10 people cheaply.  At first, I was a little concerned about explosions (and associated people becoming drenched in super-heated soup), but as it hasn’t happened yet, I’ve lowered my guard.

Tonight, we’re trying a dahl recipe, to eat with baked potatoes.  Due to the variety in people and palates, we often serve two meals that have a DIY component to them: build-it-yourself burritos, and baked potatoes with lots of fixings.  To mix it up a little for the sake of the adults, sometimes the potatoes have a chili option, and sometimes a dahl option, but the kids usually prefer yoghurt and bacon bits.

Here’s what we’re trying tonight: http://norecipes.com/masoor-dal/ .
