A pot of pulses seasoned with simple spices was lit up with firewood and simmered for several hours to make this dal preparation. The cooks would have a meal ready around the time the maharaja returned from shikaar. It would consist of this dal, along with a meat preparation eaten with rotis. This is a quicker version of the traditional recipe but tastes just as delicious.
