Ingredients (you will need):

Moong Dal - 1 cup
Salt, to taste
Red Chilli Powder, 1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder, 1/4 tsp
Amchoor Powder/Khatai/Dried Mango Powder, 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds, 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida powder/Heeng powder, a pinch
Ghee/Clarified butter, 1 tablespoon

Cooking steps:

1. In a pressure cooker, heat the ghee.

2. Add cumin seeds and let them crackle/become aromatic.

3. Add asafoetide/hing powder and cook it for 5-10 seconds.

4. Add turmeric powder.

5. Add chili powder.
