3)finely chopped Carrot , Capsicum ( you can use vegetables)
4) Chooped Onion

1) Boil daal in pressure cook for 10 -15 minutes.
2) In pan put some oil. Add musturd seeds and dry Red chilli. Let it crackle for a minute.

3) Add chopped onions and saute it for 2 minutes.
4)Add Carrots ,1 cup of water ,turmeric and 2 spoon sambhar powder and let it cook for some time.
5)Once carrot is half boiled add capsicum and daal.
