    I have always used an aluminium pressure cooker.Recently i got a new steel 2 liter prestige pressure cooker.Can anyone suggest how to cook dal in it? I was wondering if the dal would stick to the pan.Tips and suggestion would be of great help.
    Thanks

    The water level shd be very correct. if it excess, the water use to come out during the whistle, will be a mess. if it is less, will get sticky and also the smell of direct cooking dal, dont like it much. I prefer cooking in a separate vessel. Of course, channa, rajma & other veggie cooking are also ok to make; thoor dal not good.

    I had steel pressure cooker and I have tried cooking almost all the vegetables with curry, chicken curry, rajma etc directly in the cooker itself. But I used a separate vessel to cook rice and toor/moong dal!
    Sometimes it sticks to the base when you cook in the cooker itself without using a vessel, but it is very easy to clean!!
