Oil for seasoning

Pressure cook dal with green chili, onion, tomato and asafoetida for 3 minutes after first whistle.

Crush coconut, cumin seeds, tamarind and turmeric powder without water in a mixer grinder or in a stone grinder.

Heat oil in a pan and splutter mustard seeds. Add red chili and roast for a second. Immediately pour pressure cooked dal. Add crushed coconut mix and salt to taste. Allow to boil for 5 minutes.

Season with curry leaves and serve with rice. As I currently live in Germany and i did not get curry leaves, I omitted curry leaves.
