To begin with, rinse, wash, and soak the moong dal for a few hours in water. Drain all the water using a strainer, then wash the dal again and allow the remaining water to drain entirely.
In a thick-bottomed pan or kadhai, heat the ghee or oil. As soon as the cumin seeds start to sputter, add the asafoetida. Then add the drained dal and cook till the liquid evaporates.
It's time to add the extra spices. Mix in the red chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, and salt. Mix thoroughly. Add enough water to the dal now. Ensure that it is a bit above the dal.
Cook on high heat until the water boils, then reduce to low heat and continue to cook covered until all of the water has been absorbed.
Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot!
