  Place mung beans on ungreased griddle or in a skillet over medium to
  medium-low heat.  Stirring often, roast the dal for 8 to 10 minutes.
  The dal will acquire a lighter colour & emit a nutty aroma.  Be
  careful that they do not turn a dark brown.  Transfer to a bowl &
  wash if desired.
  Bring water to a boil & stir in the dal along with the turmeric &
  whole chiles.  Simmer, covered, until the dal is tender, 35 to 45
  minutes. While cooking, uncover & stir occasionally.  Add salt,
  sugar, cumin & coriander. Keep warm.
  Heat oil in a skillet.  Add bay leaf & kalonji & fry for a few
  seconds. Add ginger & minced green chile & fry until the ginger is
  lightly browned which should be no more than 2 minutes.  Stir
  constantly. Pour into the dal & mix well.  Simmer for a further
  couple of minutes & remove from heat. Blend in the garam masala,
  lemon or lime juice & ghee if desired. Cover & let stand to let the
  flavours develop. Garnish & serve.
