I used mustard seeds. Soaked the dal, cooked it with some salt and turmeric. Then in separate pan I sauté the mustard seeds in oil, added crushed coriander seeds, cumin seeds, to toast then added chopped onion, garlic, ginger and I needed some heat and had no chilies but had some Sambal oelek.
Which is so awesome and spicy. Cooked for a few minutes then added chopped fresh tomato. Set that aside until dal was almost tender and added the spice mixture to Dal pot along with some Garam Masala. Cooked for about 15 minutes so the flavors married and it came out great.
No Naan unfortunately @immadummee47
I didn’t go out to the store because it was a rainy day so I did with what I had in pantry.
