You can also smoke the dal using coal to get the dhaba style smoky flavour. Just heat a charcoal piece until it is red hot. Keep a small bowl over the dal and keep the coal piece on it. Drizzle a tsp of ghee on the hot coal and immediately cover the lid of the dal. Let the smoke soak in the dal. Remove the lid and discard the coal. Heat the dal once gain before serving.
