Soak the broken wheat overnight or at least 4 hours. Next, soak the urad dal for 2 hours.
Take a large vessel and add the soaked wheat, soaked urad dal, salt and 12 cups of water.
Bring it to a boil and keep stirring on low heat until the wheat is thoroughly cooked. This is a time consuming process. Do not rush by turning on high heat. The dalia gets burnt very easily so keep stirring.
While you get the wheat cooked, start the mutton masala. Heat oil in a pan.
Add the onions, green chilli and whole spices. Fry till the onion turns golden brown.
Next throw in the ginger garlic paste and cook for 2 minutes till the raw smell vanishes from it.
Add in the mutton and tomatoes. Throw in the red chilli powder, coriander powder and salt. Cook till the mutton is tender.
Either shred the cooked mutton with hand using a fork or blend coarsely.
Add the mutton masala to the cooked wheat. Keep stirring and cook until it becomes a thick paste.
Serve hot garnished with fried onions, coriander & mint leaves and lemon juice.
