Do it this way:

  • Fry the papads and keep it aside (either go for deep fry or keep it in oven for 2 mins batchwise)

  • Soak channa dhal for 15 mins and add turmeric powder, chilly powder,salt to it.
  • Pressure cook the above channa dhal with 2 cups of water until it gets cooked (up to 3 to 4 whistles).
