  3. Add in grated tomatoes. Saute for 2 minutes.
  4. Add red chili powder, turmeric powder, green chilies paste. Mix well.
  5. Now add boiled dal. Mix well. Add garam masala. If needed add water and mix well.

My Tip: Increase proportion of both red, green chilies and garam masala if want it to be more hot and spicy.
