slits in them longitudinally and keep aside.
Take out the dal from cooker. Add red chili powder, turmeric powder and salt to the dal and keep aside.
Heat a pan and add oil to it. When oil is hot add mustard seeds. Then add fenugreek seeds and fry. When the seeds are golden brown in color add mustard seeds followed by cumin seeds. Fry well. Then add green chilies and fry. Then add curry leaves and mix. Finally add asafoetida and fry well. To this seasoning add the cooked dal along with the chili powder, turmeric powder and salt. If required add some water and mix well. Cover the pan and cook on slow flame for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes the dal will be ready with the right consistency. Let the dal be a bit watery. As it cools down it becomes thick. Transfer this dal to a serving bowl. Serve hot with any pickle or just as it is.
Point To Remember:
Remember to add fenugreek seeds in the seasoning whenever you prepare a sour dish. It gives a nice flavor when fried in oil. That is the combination. Whenever we use lemon, tamarind or mango use of fenugreek seeds in the seasoning.
