Instant Pot Chana Dal

Firstly, I turned on my instant pot at sauté mode and heated oil in it. Then, I added the tempering in the hot oil.

Secondly, I sautéed onions in it until translucent.

Next, I tossed in coconut flakes and cooked until golden in color.

Thereafter, I added tomatoes and cooked it until they were mushy.

Afterwards, I mixed in all the spices.

Lastly, I sautéed chana dal in it followed by water and salt.  Further, I closed the lid and sealed the valve. Finally, I turned it on at high manual for 20 minutes.

I turned it off and released the pressure. Then, I opened the lid and added ¼ cup more water to get the right consistency.
