Preparation / Directions:
Wash the dal and boil in water until thoroughly cooked. Remove from heat, let cool and make into a paste in a grinder. Keep aside.
Meanwhile chop all the vegetables into bite sized pieces except the drumstick which is cut into 2.5 inch pieces. In a pot mix the vegetables, the above paste and the remaining ingredients in set 1 and bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and let cook until the vegetables are cooked.

In a deep skillet heat butter on low heat and add mustard seeds and cumin. When the mustard seeds start to pop add fenugreek seeds and slightly crushed garlic cloves. When the garlic starts to turn light brown add contents from pot. Raise the heat to high and bring to a boil.
