Thinly chop the bell pepper's and Steam them in a steamer until soft but not mushy. Set aside.
Coarsely blend the Toor dal ,chanadal,red chillies,curry leaves and hing in a blender.
Transfer Usli mix to a greased microwave bowl . Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes.[You can also steam traditional way,but this is much easier].Let it cool and blend in a blender or food processor using the pulse option.
