1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a small nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat and add the ginger, red chili peppers, and curry leaves. Cook, stirring, until golden, about 1 minute. Add the fenugreek and coriander seeds, all the dals, coconut, and asafoetida, and cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Let cool, transfer to a blender, and blend, adding some of the yogurt to facilitate blending, until smooth. Then add the rest of the yogurt, turmeric, and salt, and blend again until smooth.
2. Transfer to a large nonstick wok or saucepan and cook, stirring constantly, over medium-high heat until it comes to a boil. Then reduce the hat to medium and cook, stirring, until the curry thickens a little and is smooth, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish.
3. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of the oil in the saucepan you used in Step 1, and add the mustard and cumin seeds they should sizzle upon contact with the hot oil. Remove from the heat, quickly add the paprika, and transfer to the kadhi. Swirl lightly to mix, with parts of it visible as a garnish, and serve.
