  • Soak the chana dal in water for 15-20 mins. Rinse and drain.
  • Cook the chana dal in the 3 cups of water along with the turmeric until it is cooked - should mush fairly easily when pressed between fingers but should not appear mushy. Drain and keep aside.
  • Heat the oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. Once they splutter, add curry leaves, dried red chillies and the asafetida. Add the cooked dal and salt and toss for a couple of minutes.
  • Serve hot with a cup of hot chai.
