Make a South Indian Sambar (vegan) very easily with this Instant Pot recipe
To a small saucepan add 3/4 cup toor dal and 1.5 cup water and let it boil in the stove. Also remember to soak tamarind in a cup of water to soften.
Set Instant Pot to 'Saute' mode. Let the pan get hot. Add oil to pan. Add mustard seeds when hot, then methi seeds, hing and curry leaves. Saute
Get the par-boiling of dal started while prepping the veggies itself. This will give it more time to soften.
