Kulath ki daal / horse gram millet

It's been long ...I was busy with my new baby venture , my jwelery business trying to put it into shape, completing my orders, build up my online shop....Drumbeads 
And was trying to start up my dream project ....must visit my Instagram pages -minal's spice world as well as Drumbeads ....:)
While I was busy with my new venture I had left some recipes lined up in my Dropbox....so posting them now. Continuation of tasty mountain food ( kumaoni cuisine ) I wanted to share pahari Dal / kulath ki dal / mandua ki dal / horse gram millet 
Kulath or Horsegram is also know as Gahat. This dal is tempered with gandharein. Searching on what it is, I came to know it's a sort of heeng, I couldn't get it so I used regular heeng and cumin seeds.
