3. Make a paste of little coconut, 5-6 cloves of garlic, 1 small tomato and add it to the pan.

4. Cook the paste nicely and add the sprouted matki and salt. Saute for a couple of mins so that the dal is coated in all the masalas and looks shiny. Add water* and cook for 10  mins. Check if the dal is cooked. Garnish with coriander leaves.

* Add more water as this should be a very thin gravy so u need to add more masalas.
