Soak Urad dal for 1 hour
In a mixer take the whole spices, pulse it couple of times for the spices to blend.
Then add the drained urad dal, a pinch of salt to the blended spices. Sprinkle some water for the paste to run smoothly.
Heat a non stick pan with 1 tsp oil, add the ground urad paste and saute till it becomes dry. It's quite difficult to fry this in a regular pan, non stick pan makes this easier. Most of the urad dal might get struck to the pan, will not be able to save much though.
