Pick, clean and wash the lentils well, 2 or 3 times; place in a heavy-based pan with 4 cups of water, turmeric, ginger and salt.
Place the pan over high heat and cover partially. Bring to a boil and simmer till cooked. If using a pressure cooker, add only 3 cups of water, cook for 10 minutes and set aside.
Heat the clarified butter in a heavy-based pan; add the asafoetida and cumin seeds. When the cumin seeds begin to splutter, add the powdered coriander and the garam masala.
Mix well, add the lentils and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 1 minute. Transfer the lentils into a serving bowl.
In another smaller pan, heat 1 Tbsp of clarified butter and add the chilli powder and garnish the lentils. Sprinkle the chopped coriander leaves and serve hot.
