No, not the thing that goes "bang", but the spice: from NDTV food:
250gm chana dal
250gm toor dal
6-8 red chillies
1 Tbsp Putana (roasted Bengal gram)
1 t Tbsp coriander seeds
1 tsp whole jeera
1 Tbsp black sesame seeds
1. Dry roast all the ingredients separately. Bring it down to room temperature, and powder.
2. Serve with ghee or oil.
