Kaddhu Dhal (Bottle gaurd with lentils)

Take equal quantities of Masoor dhal and Toor dhal, wash it with water 3 times and keep aside to soak for a while. Meanwhile chop the onion, kaddhu and tomato, and keep the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves, salt, chilli powder, corainder powder and chilli powder ready.
