1/4 tsp of mustard
1/2 tsp of cumin seeds 
1/4 tsp of urad dhal
1/4 tsp of Bengal gram dhal
pinch of asafoetida


1.Soak moong dhal for 30 minutes in water. Add 1 tbsp of oil to the pan, add the seasoning and curry leaves.

3.Add turmeric, red chilly powder and salt. Add half cup of water and close the lid.
4.Check if the carrots and dhal are cooked. Carrot poryial is ready. Serve with rice/ roti.
