Wash the pulses properly and soak them for about 2-3 hours before cooking.
Make whole wheat dough and set it aside.
Now, add dal with all the ingredients and pressure cook it until two whistles.
Meanwhile, make small balls of the whole wheat dough. The size of the balls should be smaller than the size of lemons.
Then take one ball, dust it with some dry wheat flour and roll it flat like a poori. Then bring the sides together to form a flower like shape. Prepare all pithis in the same way.
Add pithis into the dal and simmer for 10-15 minutes on low-medium heat.
Add desi ghee with hing and serve hot!
