Toss in the Tomatoes (2) , Cumin Seeds (1 tsp) , Chili Powder (1/2 tsp) , Ground Ginger (1/2 tsp) , Ground Turmeric (1/2 tsp) , Salt (3/4 tsp) and cook until the tomatoes have softened and the spices are fragrant about 4-5 minutes. Press the "cancel" button to stop sauteing.
Step 4
Transfer in the Red Lentils (1 cup) , Coconut Milk (3/4 cup) , Water (2 cups) and place the lid on. Select the pressure cook settings and cook it at high pressure for 10 minutes.
Step 5
When the timer goes off and a beep sound can be heard, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes before removing the excess pressure.

Give the dal a quick stir, adding more salt if necessary. Serve it with some brown rice or chapati and enjoy!
