hi, well i`ve stayed in orissa for a few years n as far as i know cumin n red chillies are not fried in ghee but are dry roasted , powdered and then added in the end to the lentil and vegetables mix for flavour. Also seasoning is done with panch phoran, i.e. mustard, cumin, kalonji, sounf n methi seeds in ghee. a pinch of asaefotida can also be added.
