This is my twist on classic moong dal khichdi and it was really really good. Puy lentils or French lentils are nutty and flavorful. They don’t have to be soaked before hand and their cooking time is same as brown rice.

You can definitely make this in the pressure cooker, but I prefer the closed pot cooking method.
