1.Soaking dal is an important step as chana dal takes a longer time to tenderize.
2.Even if the dal is not soaked give many whistles to tenderize the dal.
3.Here I have added mutton and chana dal together and pressure cooked it however, the dal can be cooked separately and added to cooked mutton.
4.Additional spices such as corinader seeds powder and cumin powder can be added to enhance the taste.
