I'm planning on making a simple dish using split pigeon peas (or, toor dal) which I plan to soak for an hour.
Since I don't have a pressure cooker, I will need to cook these on the stove top. What is the appropriate lentil-to-water ratio I should use? Is it (as I suspect) 3 cups water to 1 cup lentils? Or, like pasta, does it not matter and I should just keep stirring?
