Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

Mix all above and put them in an Indian cooker (pressure cooker). Wait until the dal is cooked ( 4 whistles ).

Heat two spoons of ghee, and fry

This takes less than 30 seconds to fry. Once garlic turns golden, add one small tomato finely chopped. Add salt, chilli powder to your taste. Add "Coriander or Dhaniya powder". I would recommend this. Add the above cooked Dal Mix to this fry, and let it simmer. You can add water if you like it to be more like gravy. Add two drops of lemon juice for added taste.

Eat this with hot rice, and an optional touch of Gongura pickle.
