Maharashtrian dal fry

This recipe I learnt from my Roopa pachi,  watching whom I got inspired into cooking.  She used to prepare so many varieties of chats.  It was a real experience to watch her cooking.  I  used to run around her asking so many doubts about her recipes and she very patiently used to describe everything to me.  I am really thankful to her and because of her I started experimenting new recipes. 
Toor dal                                   ½ cup
Masoor dal                             ½ cup
Turmeric powder                  ¼ tsp
Red chillies                             7 to 8
Garlic                                       6 to 7 flakes
Hing                                         pinch
Coriander leaves                    1tbsp chopped
Kokam                                    1or 2
Methi seeds                          ¼ tsp
Salt  to taste.
Wash and soak masoor dal for 10-15 minutes.  Then pressure cook haldi powder and methi seeds. 
Peel and crush garlic and keep aside.
