To begin with, first, we need to wash the chana dal thoroughly. Soak it in water for around 30-40 minutes. Drain the dal and keep it aside.
Now, heat some oil in a pressure cooker. Add jeera and finely chopped onions and cook until the onions become translucent.
Add green chillies, ginger, tomatoes and all the dry masalas. Cook until the tomatoes become tender, stirring occasionally. (You will notice that the onion-tomato masala will begin to release oil).
Next, add the soaked chana dal and stir well. Add chopped lauki, imli and salt. Now, add water and give it a nice mix. Cover it with a lid and pressure cook on high heat for 3-4 whistles.
Once done, remove the lid and garnish with fresh coriander leaves. Serve hot!
