My Notes :

1. You can add 2 or 3 cloves of garlic while frying the dal if you like the flavor.

2. Adding coconut is optional.

3. I grinded the dal first then added coconut. Else the dal will not be grinded well.

4. I microwaved the coconut and added. Instead you can fry in pan for a minute and add it.

5. Carefully roast the dal without getting burnt else it will have a bitter taste.
