Narkel Diye Cholar Dal (Bengali Style Chana Dal) is a traditional Bengali lentil dish prepared from chana dal (Bengal gram lentil), ghee, coconut, and a few spices. It is sweet and savory and is best paired with luchi or steamed rice.
This dal is slightly thicker in consistency and not mushy like other Indian lentils. So make sure not to add much water to it while cooking.I make this recipe with my 6-quart instant pot (or a 3-liter stovetop pressure cooker). If you are scaling the recipe, use an 8-quart instant pot (or a 5-liter pressure cooker).
