1. Heat the mustard oil in a large nonstick wok or saucepan over medium-high heat and roast the dal and potato, stirring and shaking the pan, until the dal is golden, about 3 minutes.
2. Add 4 cups water, salt, cayenne pepper, and turmeric and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and cook the dal, stirring occasionally and watching carefully that it doesn't boil over, about 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, add the remaining 1/2 cup water, and simmer until the dal is soft and creamy, about 15 minutes. Mix in the sugar, lemon juice, and cilantro, and transfer to a serving dish. Cover and keep warm.
3. Heat the vegetable oil in a small nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat and add the cumin and kalonji seeds they should sizzle upon contact with the hot oil. Quickly add the garlic and asafoetida, stir a few seconds, and add to the dal. Swirl lightly to mix, with parts of it visible as a garnish. Serve.
