    I made this this afternoon and it was DELICIOUS! Only problem? There wasn’t enough. If I double the recipe, what adjustments to do I have to make? Do increase the cooking time in the Instant Pot?

    • Srividhya G says

      Glad you liked it :-) Just double the spices including the water. Cooking time doesn’t vary much especially for red lentils. You can increase the pressure cooking time to 12 minutes but rest all remains the same.
