- Wash the Dal and remove the impurities if any.
- Remove the greens and skin from the Radishes and cut them into small squares.
- Now take the Dal along with the Turmeric powder and three times water in a pressure cooker.
- Put the vent weight on and cook till one whistle comes on low flame.
- Once the pressure drops, open the lid and add the radish chunks, cilantro and green chilies cut into halves and put the lid again with the weight on.
- Cook on low flame till two whistles come out from it and then switch the flame off.
- Now heat the Ghee in a pan and temper the ghee with Nigella Seed and dry Red Chilli.
- Add boiled Dal with the veggies to it.
- Add salt to taste and the sugar and mix with a ladle.
- Bring it to boil and then switch the flame off.

Coriander Leaves are optional however I prefer adding a few.
