Pick and wash all dals with plenty of water. Then soak in two cups of water for half an hour. Drain and leave aside. Clean, wash and chop coriander leaves. Peel, wash garlic and chop finely.
Boil the dals in three cups of water along with turmeric powder until almost cooked. Add red chilli powder, goda masala and salt. Mix well. Boil for another few minutes to cook the dals properly.
Take off the heat. Heat ghee in a pan, add cumin seeds and mustard seeds, cook for a moment. Add chopped garlic and whole red chillies and sauté until garlic turns brown. Add this to cooked dal and keep covered for two to three minutes.
Stir dal well, garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot.
