Ingredients

Directions

Step 1

Wash and cook the dals in a pressure cooker for about 4 whistles.

Step 2

:- They should be thoroughly mashed.

Step 3

Heat oil in a pan or a kadai.

Step 4

Add cumin seeds.

Step 5

Add the chopped onion and fry till it becomes golden- brown.

Step 6

Add the dried red chillies, salt and asafoetida and fry for a few seconds.

Step 7

Put all the masalas and the ginger-garlic paste and fry till the oil separates.

Step 8

Add the cooked dal mixture to this and pour enough water to make it viscous.

Step 9

:- I generally add 1/2 cup and then add more if required.

Step 10

:- The dal should have a creamy texture to it.

Step 11

Let this simmer for a few mins.

Step 12

Add the lemon juice and turn off the stove.

Step 13

Garnish with chopped cilantro and unsalted butter.

Step 14

:- Serve with jeera rice or rotis or parathas.

Step 15

:- The quantities of the masalas depend on the amount of dal used. If using a bigger measuring cup, please increase the amounts of spices too.
