  6. Keep the lentils on a low simmer while you make the fried seasonings.

  9. Add the garlic, ginger and chilies and continue cooking for 2 more minutes.
  10. Increase the heat to high, add the tomatoes, and fry, turning them carefully and shaking the pan, until they look slightly browned and cooked (about 5 minutes).
  11. Pour the entire contents of the pan over the dal and gently stir to mix.
  12. Continue simmering while you make the spiced butter.
  13. Wipe the frying pan clean and place it on medium high heat.
  14. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of the oil.
  15. When it is hot, add the cumin, cayenne and paprika.
  16. Immediately pour the entire contents of the pan over the dal, scraping the mixture out with a rubber spatula.
