Method

Cook dal in required water and salt till they are half done (don't overcook the dal). Set this aside.

Using a pestle and mortar, crush shallots, garlic, and dry red chillies. Set this aside.

Heat oil in a pan. Splutter mustard seeds. Add set aside crushed shallots-garlic-red chillies. Now add turmeric powder and curry leaves. Saute well.
