Pressure cook daal wit turmeric for 3 whistles.

Add 1/2 cup water,salt, chilli powder and jaggery and bring to a boil.

For the seasoning, heat the ghee in a pan.
Add the hing and garlic cloves.
Saute till the garlic is brown.

Add the methi and saute for a few minutes.
Pour the seasoning over the daal and stir well.

Serve hot.
