    Hi Sugandha, u can put either 2 small bowls one above the other . In this case in one bowl add veggies put lid and on top put second bowl of dal (donot cover dal bowl) . boil this for 4 or 5 whistles.
    If u want to put 2 bowls at a time in pressure cooker in india in steel stores special cooker bowls will be available which u can stack one above other.
