Heat the oil in the medium saucepan over a medium heat. Add the cumin, mustard, fenugreek seeds followed by chili papers. Fry it for few seconds. Add the onions and sauté until onions are soft, then add the garlic, ginger, turmeric, cardamom, garam masala and tomato paste or fresh tomatoes. Sauté for 5 – 8 min until all the aromas are released. Add the washed lentils to the pot then combine all together. Slowly add the vegetable stock. Mix the daal to make sure the mixture is not sticking to the bottom of your sauté pan. Bring it to boil then simmer for 20 min until daal is soft. Serve the daal with chopped cilantro, coconut yogurt, naan and lime wedges. Enjoy.
