Allow it to cool for 10 mins.
Then mash the cooked items and keep aside.
Now take a separate pan and heat with 1 tbsp of oil.
Add mustard seeds.
When they start to crackle add cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, curry leaves, onions and asafoetida.
Saute till the onions turn into golden brown colour.
Then add the cooked and mashed dal and adjusts the salt.
Remove from heat and serve hot with plain white rice, Roti, Dosa, Idly, etc...
