Chana Dal Halwa is traditionally cooked by roasting chana dal and then cooking it into a pudding. This recipe is a simpler and faster, yet equally delicious version of the traditional recipe.
Strain water from the chana dal and transfer into a pressure cooker or Instant Pot. Add water to the Instant Pot. Cover and cook until the chana dal is cooked through.
Turn off the heat. Add slivered almonds. Mix. Transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle on a little more almonds or pistachios. Serve warm.
