  3. Then heat a pan with oil and add the items given under the sauteing. Once the mustard seeds splutter add the boiled thurdal with some water and add salt and red chilli powder. While the dal is boiling grind the items given for grinding in a mixer coarsely without water.
  4. Add the stuff to the boiling dal and mix well. After a minute switch off the stove. The dal is ready to serve now.

If you are making this for kids instead of chopping the green chillies, add them to the grinding stuff. Instead of oil use ghee for sauteing.
