Take the daal, boil it along with turmeric powder, slit green chilies and salt.
Take a pan and heat oil. Once heated add tomatoes, jeera and garlic pods. Keep sautéing till the tomatoes start to appear pulpy.
Now add daal, water in it and keep boiling it for 15 mns. The daal needs to get the masala flavor.
Garnish the daal with coriander leaves
