  2. Heat up ghee in a pan. Crush up ginger, garlic and chili using a mortar-pestle. Add the cumin seeds to the ghee, once sizzles add the bayleaf, dried red chili, hing, along with the crushed mixture.
  3. Saute for a moment, add the cardamom, crushed coriander seeds, chili flakes. cook for a minute.
  4. Add the onions, ¼ tsp salt and cook till brown. Once starts leaving fat and is brown, add the tomato puree, salt to taste and cook for 10-12 mins or until starts leaving sides and fat.
  5. Once done, add a handful of chopped coriander, cumin powder, garam masala, kashmiri red chili powder, coriander powder, amchoor and kasoori methi. Mix well and cook for another 2-3 mins..
  6. Add the cooked dal, and cook for 3-4 mins.. Make sure the dal is not watery, It should be very thick. Add ½ cup water, mix well and cook for 5 mins.. Switch off the flame.
  7. Heat up a charcoal until fiery red. Place a small stainless steel bowl in the dal and make sure it stays and does not sink, put in the hot charcoal and pour in a few drops of ghee. Quickly cover the pan. This will bring the real dhaba/restaurant taste, the smoky taste. Let this be like for 10 mins.
  8. Take the bowl out, mix the dal and relish!
Notes
You can also add in a tablespoon of overnight soaked rajma/kidney beans with the dals if you wish to.
