So when the theme 'Indian basics' was put up for this edition of BM, this was the one that came to my mind. I asked mom for the recipe and she gladly shared it with me....
Chana dal / bengal gram - 1/4 cup
Whole white urad dal - 1/4 cup
Sesame seeds,black - 2 tablespoons
Asafoetida powder - a large pinch

- Heat a pan and roast the sesame seeds on low heat till you hear the popping sound. Remove from heat and keep aside.
- Heat oil in a pan and put in the asafoetida powder.Put in the chana dal, urad dal,red chilli and roast till the dal turns brown.Remove from heat and cool.
- Grind the sesame seeds,dal mixture to a semi coarse powder.
