Dim Dal Fry

This one's one of my favourites, and my mil likes it a lot too..

Pressure cook 1 cup of whole moong dal, with a pinch of turmeric.
In a vessel, heat some ghee. For tempering add garlic, ginger, jeera, hing, red chillies, chopped onions, chopped tomatoes and coriander powder. Add the dal, enough water and bring to boil. Finally add salt, lemon juice / amchur to taste (optional), and chopped coriander leaves.
