Then add cumin seeds, bay leaf, dry whole red chillies, allspice and saute for 15 seconds or until toasted. Reduce the heat and add mung dahl, ground cumin, ginger, salt and sugar and saute until all the spices and mung dahl are fried. Add water, raisins and cashews. Cook on low for 10-15 minutes or until dahl is soft. The curry should have a nice balance of salty, sour, sweet and hot without one flavour dominating over the others. Add ghee 30 seconds before finishing and mix in well. Then add fresh coriander as garnish and serve with white rice or Indian chapathi or ruti.
