  • Soak the tuvar dal and the chana dal in water for about two hours. Drain, and using as little water as possible, grind to a paste along with the other ingredients.
  • Steam or microwave 1 head of broccoli, separated into small florets, until it is quite tender but not falling apart or mushy.
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a skillet. Add 1 tsp mustard seeds and when they sputter, add 1 tbsp udad dal.
  • Add the lentil paste to it and stir fry around 10 minutes until the lentils darken in hue and no longer taste raw.
  • Add the broccoli and mix it in with a few stirs.
  • Check the salt and remove from the heat. Serve hot.
