Since moong Dal was not available I used regular Dal is it OK? N u didn't mentioned how much whistle is required so I took 4 whistle but Dal didn't cooked properly so I whistled it again.

jeyashri suresh October 30, 2017 - 1:32 am

Hi yes it's ok to use toor dal. Sorry generally i give 4-5 whistles, but if you soak it for 10 minutes and then cook, it will be fine.
