Ingredients for Dal Panchratan

1/2 cup mixed dals (1 Tablespoon each of Arhar, Channa, Moong, Sabut and Masoor)
Oil, 1-1/2 Tablespoons
Onion, 1 large finely chopped
Ginger, 1 teaspoon chopped
Garlic: 3 cloves chopped
Coriander, 1/2 Tablespoon powder
Turmeric, 1/2 Tablespoon powder
Red chilli paste to teste
Salt, 1 teaspoon or to taste
Garam masala, a little
Lemon Juice, 1-2 teaspoon
Fresh Coriander, 1 teaspoon finely chopped

Method for Dal Panchratan

Pick, wash and soak the dals all together in 4 cups water. It would be best if you let them soak for about an hour. If you soak them overnight that would be perfectly fine too. Heat the oil in a pan. As soon as the oil heats up , put the onion. Fry until they are golden brown. Add the other six ingredients. Stir and fry for 1 minute. Scoop out the dals from the water with a large spoon or your hand. Drop into the cooker. Fry till the dals start sticking to the pan. Add the water in which the dals were soaked. Close the cooker and let it come to maximum pressure. As soon as it whistles, turn down the heat, and keep on the heat for 14 minutes. Let the pressure reduce on its own. Open the cooker and check that the dals are tenderized and well blended. Stir together and boil away any excess liquid. Just before serving, stir in the garam masala, lime juice and fresh coriander.
