Tomatoes - 6 to 8 Medium
Onions - 2 to 4 small
Garlic - 5 to 7 pods
Toor Dal/Red Lentils/Pigeon Peas - 1 cup
Salt - to taste
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Red Chilli Powder - 1 tbsp

To Temper:

Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tbsp
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tbsp
Red Chillies - 1 
Asafoetida - 1 tsp
Curry Leaves - 5 to 7

Procedure:

Cut tomatoes and onions. Just slice them into four or five parts only.
Cook the dal in a pressure cooker for three whistles or we can cook it separately also till the dal done. Once done mash it with ladle and keep it a side.

When they start spluttering add onions and fry them till the onions become translucent. 
Add tomatoes and fry for 5 minutes. Once they are cooked and become soft add salt and turmeric powder, allow it to cook for 5 more minutes.
