pressure till cool.Then mix up the dal - should mashy
Next add : Imli Juice to taste 2-3 Chopped Green Chilies and cook another5-7 minutes.
1 Teaspoon Jeera Seeds.
1 Teaspoon Black Mustard Seeds.
Whole Dried Red Chilies.
1 Tablespoon Chopped Garlic.
1 Teaspoon Garlic Paste.
ghee , splutter seeds , add dried red chilies and curry leaves and pour
over boiling dal .Cook 2-3 minutes and then add 1 teaspoon garlic paste
, stir in and take off the heat.Let the dal sit covered 10 minutes for
flavors to marry and then adjust to taste .
