1. Soak chana dal, yellow toor dal, yellow moong dal, pink masoor dal, and moong dal in three cups of water for 3 hours. Add ghee into a pressure cooker, heat it on medium flame, and then add cumin seeds into it. Allow the seeds to crackle.

2. Add garlic, ginger, green chillies, and onion & saute it until the onion gets softened. Continue to saute the mixture after adding cinnamon stick and bay leaf into it.

3. Now, add tomatoes, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, & hing. Saute it until the tomatoes have softened and then add soaked dals, water, and salt into it. Pressure cook Rajasthani Dal for about 20 minutes, turn off the flame, and allow the pressure to release naturally. Transfer the Rajasthani Dal into a bowl.

4. To make the tadka, take a pan and heat ghee in it on medium heat. Add red chillies and cumin seeds into it and then allow it to get roasted. Turn off the flame and then add the tadka into the Rajasthani Dal.
