1. Wash and soak split chana dal in water for 3-4 hours.

3. Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds. When they splutter, add asafetida, turmeric powder and

crushed garlic.


4. Now add ground dal, salt, sugar and stir.


5. Keep mixing the dal so that it will not stick to the bottom. After some time, all the water contents dry



6. Cover for a min. Remove the lid and stir. Garnish with coconut and coriander leaves. Serve hot.




This is traditionally prepared as a farewell dish to Lord Ganesha, on the Visarjan Day of Ganesh Chaturthi. It is served as a condiment, and when prepared for festivals, the garlic is usually skipped.
