When dal turns golden brown, add chopped onions, green chillies and ginger.
Saute until onions turn transparent.
Then add 2 cups of water, ghee and salt needed. Taste the water and check for salt.(if it is a bit salty, then it will become perfect after adding rava).
When the water starts boiling, reduce the flame to low, add rava gradually with one hand and keep stirring with your other hand.
Once the rava absorbs all the water, cover and cook on low flame for 6-7 minutes. Do not forget to stir in between.
