Black Gram Curry - Ghuta - Satari style

This was taught to me by my Father. One interesting thing is , for this curry you have to give tarka in a stone bowl called thikri.  
1/2 cup whole black urad- roasted and roughly grinded
2 tbsp chana dal
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
6-7 garlic cloves
1 tbsp cumin seeds
2 green chili's
pinch of asofoetida
salt to taste
1) Cook grinded Urad and Chana dal , turmeric, salt, chili together for 2 whistles in pressure cooker.
2) After cooking put it in a pot and let it boil, can put water to bring the desired consistency.
3) heat thikri / small pan on high flame, and then turn off the flame. add oil, crushed garlic, cumin and pinch of asofoetida. Fry.Than add to boiling cooked dal and cover with lid. Let it boil for 2-3 min.
Serve with rice.
(if using thikri, you have to put tarka to dal with thikri in dal as well. And then close lid and turnoff the gas, let the dal boil in the heat of thikri. Remove thikri before serving the dal)
