Method to prepare:
Once the pressure is off, remove the lid, drain the water to a bowl along with the green chilies. Take the pappu guthi and mash everything well. Add salt and adjust spice, if you want more spice to be added, add green chilies back and mash again. Pour back the dal water to the dal.
Heat a pan with oil and sputter with mustard, urud and sauté onions and garlic well. It can even be little browned.

A Sweet Gesture.
