Wash the green gram two to three times, soak it in water overnight or for 8 hours.

Drain the water and add it to the pressure cooker. Add salt, required amount of water and pressure cook for one whistle. Wait for the steam to release, open the lid, drain the water and keep it aside.

Heat oil in a kadai or a pan, splutter mustard seeds, cumin seeds, split urad dal and wait for about 30 seconds.

Now add dry red chillies, chopped green chillies, ginger, curry leaves, asafoetida  and fry for another 30 seconds.

Add the cooked green gram/pachai payaru and give a good stir. Saute well for another minute or two, just to make sure all the moisture is absorbed.

Finally add the grated coconut.

Mix the coconut really well. Saute for a minute and switch off the stove.
