Kandi Kattu/Soup with Red Lentil

Thanks to Lakshmi attagaru (Lakshmi Aunty). She is my MIL. She taught me this recipe. It is very easy to make and really tasty. 

Ingredients:

Red Lentils/ Toor Dal/Kandi Pappu - 1/2 cup
Red Chillies - 5 or 6
Salt - to taste
Ghee - 1 tsp
Oil - 1/2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Curry Leaves - fist full or even more than that

Procedure:

Heat ghee in a pan. Fry toor dal and red chillies. Fry them till the dal turns into light brown colour. Do not burn. 
Allow it to cool and add 1/2tsp of cumin seeds and grind it to a coarse paste. Add necessary water to it. This will make chutney. It's consistency should be as thin as dosa batter. 
In a thick bottomed vessel boil two cups of water. At the time of boiling level add the above chutney to it and remove it from the stove.
Heat oil in a pan add mustard seeds and cumin seeds, once they start crackling add them to the above kattu. 
Now add fresh curry leaves to it. Serve with rice.
