Kaali Daal is one of our favorites despite its misnomer of a name. You see, kaali means black, but this daal is decidedly brown. Black or brown, we love its bold heartiness, its comforting warmth, and its bountiful nutrition. Daal (lentils), roti (whole wheat bread) and a green chili pepper are what make up both the simplest of Indian meals and the most universally loved. 

In the Kit 1) Whole masoor lentils and aromatic spiced ghee or avocado oil (for vegan) ‘tadka’

Ingredients: Organic Lentils, Avocado Oil, Organic Ghee (eliminated for vegan), Spices & Salt

Instant Pot Instructions

  1. Add 2 ½ cups water, and then lentils.
  2. SEAL and cook at HIGH PRESSURE for 21 minutes.
  3. Once done, rest for 10 minutes, and then VENT to release remaining pressure. Enjoy!

Stovetop instructions
