Ok this is exactly not a mandatory item on the list for Basic ones in Indian Cooking. But I would rather think so. Though cooking toor dal in pressure cooker takes about 10 minutes, having cooked dal on hand is much more convenient. Especially when you are hard pressed to dish up something quick for yourself or for making rasam, this comes so handy.
Toor dal is like an everyday affair at home. Dal or Sambar is always on the menu and Rasam is mandatory. Indian Basics for Cooking is a series where I have tried showcase those basic ingredients or dishes that are very essential for whipping out a quick dish. And having cooked dal at hand surely falls in that category!
Do share what other such common dishes that you make?
