How to make it

  • Soak a cup of black lentils with one n a half cup of water over night
  • Next day pressure cook for 5-6 mins the soak lentils with the same water including garlic ... if u dont have pressure cooker just boil the lentils with garlic until soft n start becoming puree ...this will take 15-17 mins on medium heat...
