This is one of the simplest and tastiest dal recipes. I usually make spinach dal with toor dal and add either tomato or tamarind to make it slightly tangy. But for this dal, I kept it simple and you can the leafy spinach and the slight sweetness of moong dal; tadka with garlic completes the dish.
Moong dal – 1 cup
Spinach – 1 cup, chopped fine
Green chilies – 3 Onion – 1 small, chopped
For Popu/ tadka:
Urad dal – ½ tsp
Mustard seeds – ½ tsp
Cumin seeds – ½ tsp
Curry leaves – 6
Garlic – 1 clove, minced
- Pressure cook dal with spinach, onion and green chili for 3-4 whistles.
- In a small saucepan, heat 1tsp oil, add the popu ingredients and once the seeds start to splutter, add it to the dal; mix well and enjoy with rice or roti.
