2. Heat ghee in a pan and temper the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, urad dal, cashew nuts and curry leaves.
3. Add the onions and saute for a couple of minutes till it sweats out.
4. Next add the turmeric powder, green chillies and grated ginger.
5. Add the bread pieces and saute for a minute or two.
6. At this stage you can break 1 egg and fry it along with the bread mixture for added flavour. You can also add 1/2 tsp of garam masala powder.
7. Finally add lemon juice as per your taste and a generous amount of finely chopped cilantro.
8. Toss everything and switch off. Serve as a light meal or as a snack with some pickle.

I am a begineer and new to this website. I tried this recipe at home but it tastes like rubbish. Either instructions are not proper or something is wrong/missing in this recipe. I never had such a bad dinner.

I am so sorry to hear that you din't like the dish. It is so simple. I am surprised at where you went wrong...

you must have added a lot of oil, or a lot of garam masala. These two should be taken with careful measurements. Use pomace olive oil for the preparation or regular vegetable oil. Don't use the mustard oil. If vegetable oil is used, be careful of its sticky consistency, olive oil is really good with breads. Salt is also a very decisive ingredient for the taste. I have performed this dish and my mom used to cook it and it really goes well.
Mohsin, I think you did wrong with the oil and dal.
