Preparation: 
  1. Wash and soak garbanzo beans overnight.  Then pressure-cook the dal for 3 whistles.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. 
  3. When they pop, add cumin seeds + Bengal gram + black gram and sauté well until the dals turn golden brown in color.
  4. Then add red chilies + curry leaves + onions + green chilies and sauté well until onions become tender.
