Heat oil in a pan and fry asafoetida piece till golden brown/ fit for powdering.

Add rest of the ingredients in the oil and fry till the dals turn golden brown.

Allow it to cool and powder in a mixie jar. Consistency of the powder would depend on individual preference. Some people prefer it to be coarsely ground and some prefer it finely ground.
