Instant Pot Sweet Potato Pie Dal Soup

  • Cuisine: Indian


This sweet potato red lentil dal soup is thick, velvety, and warming.



  1. Add all of the ingredients to the instant pot and mix well.
  2. Secure the lid, close the pressure valve, and cook for 6 minutes at high pressure.
  3. Naturally release pressure or wait 10 minutes then release pressure.
  4. Use an immersion blender to puree until smooth. You can add water to the pot if you’d like a thinner consistency.
  5. Garnish with cilantro. 


This dal will thicken quite a bit as it cools (due to the red lentils). You will need to thin it out with water or vegetable broth when reheating.
