Turmeric - tsp
Asefotida - a pinch
Garlic - 1 pod medium size
Tamarind paste - 2 tbsp
Rasam powder - 1 tsp optional
oil- 1tsp

Pressure cook dhal and chopped tomato adding turmeric, oil and Asafotida to 2-3 whistles.
Grinde the red chillies, pepper, cumin and add this to the cooked dhal mixture.
Heat pan with 1/2 tsp oil, add mustard, mashed garlic and add this in to the dhal misture.
