Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    Can substitute any split dal for chana dal.

    My (unsoaked) chana dal was not fully cooked after 6 minutes. Next time, I would not add the full 3/4 cup water to the spice/onion/dal mix - it was a little soupier and more diluted than I would have liked.

    Pretty tasty. Instant pot only used to cook the dal so not quite as "one pot" simple as some IP recipes.
