Instant Pot Kootu

1c. toor dal
3c. chopped veggies (potatoes, peas, carrots, beans)
turmeric (1/2 tsp)
salt
3.5c. water

Cook in Instant Pot for 8 mins manual, QR after 10 mins of rest.  I did pot-in-pot cooking and cooked the coot in the main pot and rice above it in a smaller stainless steel bowl.

Thaw 1-1.5c. grated coconut in microwave.
In oil, splutter urad dal, cumin and 1 red chili (for mild kootu). Stop just before the dal turns golden.

Grind the coconut and dal mixture together with some water to make a smooth paste.
Add this to the veggie/dal mix in the instant pot, and simmer for a few mins using sauté mode.  Add more salt to taste.
