  1. Wash the tur dal 2-3 times in water. Wash and soak the drumstick leaves / moringa leaves in a large bowl of water. Swish it around and allow any dust / dirt to settle at the bottom. Fish out the leaves and repeat process twice to ensure all leaves are clean. Remove any woody stems.
  2. In a small (3 Litre) pressure pan or pressure cooker, place the washed dal, moringa leaves, halved tomato, turmeric powder and 2 cups water. Bring this to a boil. Cover with lid + weight (whistle). After 2 whistles, reduce flame / heat to minimum and allow to cook for 10-12 minutes.
