Heat the oil in a wide saucepan over medium high heat. After oil is moderately hot add mustard seeds.
As mustard seeds crack add asafetida, green chili, and curry leaves. As precaution cover the pan immediately for few seconds because as you add curry leaves to oil it will splatter.
Lower the heat to medium low, stir-fry for about 30 seconds; add raisins, peanuts and chana dal, stir-fry for one minute.
Add fennel seeds, chili powder, turmeric, and salt mix it well.
