Masoor Dal or Red Lentils are one of the most frequently used lentils in an Indian kitchen. There are numerous ways to include in our everyday meals, one among those being made into a side-dish to be served with rice or flatbreads. This Bengali Masoor Dal Sheddho is a simple boiled red lentil dish often served with a dash of pungent mustard oil and chopped red onions, chillies and fresh coriander leaves.
Pressure cook the lentils with water, salt and turmeric powder. Allow it to whistle 2-3 times and then turn off the heat.
Let the pressure cooker depressurise itself. Open it and check the consistency. If it's runny, turn on the heat and stir to let the extra water evaporate till you get mushy consistency.
Turn off the heat.
Take the boiled lentils out on a bowl and serve it with the rest of ingredients.
