  4. Then add one spoon of desi ghee as it will stop water that comes along with whistle.
  5. Now add water, we will add three bowls of water and salt as per taste. Mix all of them well. (Add water three times of dal, as we have taken one bowl of dal so we have added three bowls of water)
  6. Close the cooker and keep it on gas and let three whistles come. After three whistles, turn off the gas and let the pressure out itself.
  7. When the pressure is out completely then open the cooker and you will see dal is well cooked and aroma of whole spices will come.
  8. Now keep a wok on gas and pour one spoon of desi ghee and let it heat. When ghee gets heated then add one spoon of cumin seeds, one pinch of asafoetida.
  9. When they both gets roasted then add chopped tomatoes and roast them. Then add spices, so add one spoon of turmeric powder, one spoon of coriander powder, one spoon of Kashmiri red chilli powder, half spoon of garam masala.
