  1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat; fry the chana dal, mustard seeds and asafoetida powder in the hot oil until the mustard seeds pop and the chana dal turns golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir the tomatoes and green chilli into the mixture; cook until the tomatoes are tender, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes; stir the yoghurt and salt into the mixture. Garnish with coriander to serve.


Split Bengal gram (chana dal) and asafoetida powder can be found in Indian/South Asian stores.
