You can use any kind of lentil of your choice. Here I have used moong dal. Chop the onion and beat the curd with a hand beater.

Step 2 

Now take a kadhai and add vegetable oil along with the tempering ingredients. Add in the chopped onions and fry for a minute. Add the ginger-garlic paste and fry again to remove any rawness. Next add the spices, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, cumin powder, fish and garam masala and saute.
