Ghee 1 tablespoon
Green coriander leaves 2 tablespoon (chopped)

In a pressure cooker boil 1 and ½ cup of water and then add washed Rahar dal, salt, turmeric powder and mustard oil. Cook up to 2 whistles and then let it cool.
In a frying pan heat ghee and add chopped onions and garlic. Saute for a minute and then add tomato and green chilli. Fry till the onion becomes light brown.
