Wash and rinse the daals thoroughly in water.If you are making this in pressure cooker you can just soak it in fresh water for 10-15 minutes, or it will be ok if you do not soak it at all.
Add the mix in 4-5 cups of boiling water.
Add roughly crushed or finely chopped ginger, garlic.
Add asafoetida powder, salt, red chilli powder and turmeric powder.Let it pressure cook for 2 whistles, and turn off the heat.
Once it is cooked, open the pressure cooker, and check the consistency of the daal, you will notice that both the daals have become tender, and if you try to crush it in your fingers, these can be easily crushed using your thumb and index finger.
Now add kasoori methi (crushed dried fenugreek leaves),mix it well. Cover it and let the daal simmer on low heat for another 8-10 minutes.
