The Secret to a hasselfree Indian dish

And world domination..

Once again for my lazier-than-a-sunbathing-hippo friends, an Indian recipe.
1) You need one cup yoghurt/curd.
2) Mix 4 tablespoons gram flour in the yoghurt.
I mean mix and not add. Now go back and mix it well.
Do you see any lumps?
-Yes? Congos! You can now go back to watching your t.v. and forget about the dish.
-No? Hmm.. Alright, we're on it.
3) Add a pinch of turmeric and some salt to the paste.
4) Heat a tiny bit of oil in a pan and add some mustard seeds (let them fizzle), red chili, a pinch of asafoetida (for those saying "what foetida" -  don't even bother to look for it in your kitchen. I know it's not there besides, it can be done without it)
5) Pour the yoghurt mix in the pan and add some water to it . Let it to come to a boil.
 It's done.
  Now, get some bread/chapati/rice and tuck in !
 Or Invite friends for dinner and it's your turn to rule the world.

P.S. Of course, there are variations a many, requiring more spices and veggies (read hassle). I wanted to keep it quick and easy.

Thank you, Pallu!
But it's still not completely hassle free, for example where do I find a clean pan in my kitchen?
