Dal sticking to bottom of the pan


I've made a dal recipe from Madhur Jaffrey's book "Vegetarian India" several times. Whole red lentils are boiled with water, then partially covered and left to simmer for about 1 hour. No stirring instructions indicated. I've found that no matter what pot I use, the lentils stick to the bottom and dry/burn. Any ideas why or solutions?

Does your stove run hot? I've found that mine does and this happens to me when I'm simmering or braising things. Try turning the stove down. I'm sorry, SJ!
