Hing is asafoetida powder. It is made from an herb. You don't have to use it in the recipe. Basically, its added to dishes to avoid gas buildup in your system. You can find it at an Indian grocery store or order online.

I was keen to cook this until I saw some of the ingredients I have never heard of, too complicated for me..like urad dal, garam dal; I haven't got any curry leaves either, oh that recipes would be simplified.

You can get the green curry leaves at an Indian grocery store. Urad dal is small black whole beans and gram dal is yellow split peas. They are both available at the Indian grocery store as well as at any regular store or Chinese grocery store.
