Ingredients

Method
  1. Clean, wash and soak both the dals in water for 20 minutes.
  2. Drain, add the green chillies, ginger, garlic, turmeric powder, salt and 3 cups of water and pressure cook till the dals are tender.
  3. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
  4. Remove the green chillies and discard them. Whisk so as to mash the dals. Keep aside.

  7. Add the dals, mix well and bring to boil. Serve hot garnished with coriander and butter.
