If you don’t have a pressure cooker, put the lentils and water into a normal saucepan and cook for 20 minutes. Add the vegetables and cook for a further 20 minutes. To make a non-vegetarian version of this dish add 200g of cooked pork or lamb, which will add 200 calories per serve. That is still only 507 calories per serve for a complete meal. Double or triple the quantities for the Sambhar Masala and keep the extra to season other dishes.
