Soak a cup of green gram overnight.
Chop the veg of your choice which you would like to add along. I use cabbage or bottle gourd.
Also chop and keep ready – onion, tomato, green chillis, curry leaves, coconut pieces, 5 garlic cloves, 2 spoons of jeera and all other masalas.
Heat oil in a cooker, add mustard and jeera. When it splitters add onions, turmeric powder, coriander powder, chilli powder and salt and mix well.
Now add the soaked green gram and chopped veg of choice and mix well. Add a pinch of garam masala and mix well. Add little water and close the lid to let 3-4 whistles.
Meanwhile, make a paste of Coconut pieces, garlic cloves, jeera, curry leaves and green chillies and keep it ready.
Once the gram is done, open the lide of the cooker and add the paste to it and bring it to boil.
