If the dahl appears soft and cooked, take a teaspoon or tablespoon of dahl and try to mash it on a plate or cup. If you can mash it easily, remove the pan from the stove. Using a heavy spoon, ladle or masher, mash the dahl lightly. Don't mash too much.

Step 4

If you would like to use a Pressure Cooker instead of a saucepan, follow the steps below.

Step 5

Add 1/2 inch of water at the bottom of the pressure cooker. Place the cooker on high heat. Place the plate that is provided with the cooker at the bottom of the pressure cooker. Place inside the cooker on top of the plate, a small deep metal bowl that can hold about 4 cups of water. Add the washed mung dahl to the bowl. Add 2 cups of water for 1 cup of mung dahl. Close the pressure cooker. Make sure the settings are set correctly to cook.

Step 6

When enough pressure has built up in the pressure cooker, in about 10 minutes, the noise of the steam will slowly increase and become loud. Lower the heat to very low, and let it cook for a minute or two. Switch off the stove.

Step 7

Wait for about 10 or 15 minutes for the steam to completely subside in the pressure cooker. When it is safe to open, open the pressure cooker. Remove the bowl. Using a heavy spoon, ladle or masher, mash the dahl lightly. Don't mash too much.
