5 minute instant-pot daal

This super simple 5 minute DAAL is divine. Inspiration came from an old favorite recipe from Nigel Slater, adapted for the instant-pot! So far we’ve served it up with sausages, chicken and a jammy fried eggs + tons of veggies. So yum!!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup red / yellow lentils (rinsed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 yellow onion (chopped)
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic chopped fine
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil / ghee
  • 3 cups water 
  • pinch of salt 

Recipe:

  1. Sauté onion, garlic and spices in the oil 
  2. Turn instantpot off and add the lentils and water
  3. Stir it all up and set to high pressure for 5 minutes. 
  4. When it finishing cooking stir vigorously  or “mash” and allow the lentils to smooth out. It will thicken a lot but if too thin you can sauté for a few minutes with the top off. 
  5. We love to serve it up with rice, veggies and a jammy egg on top!

* for stovetop version cook and water on the stovetop for about 25 minutes until they fully absorb the water. At the same time, use a shallow pan to make the ghee (coconut oil, onion, garlic, cumin, salt). Let it simmer for about 20 minutes. Serve the ghee on top of the lentils.
