Spinach Fry & Tomato Dal

I missed Veganmofo over the weekend, so I thought I will post 2 very simple recipes to make up for it. These two dishes are actually too simple and easy and they don’t need a recipe, but I’ll give them anyway. :-)

First up is Spinach fry or sautéed spinach. I sometimes add soaked moong dal to make it even more nutritious.

Moong dal
½ cup
Red Masoor dal

Green chilies – chopped

Turmeric

Steps

  1. Cook both dals with tomato, green chilies & enough water in a pressure cooker until thoroughly cooked (takes about 4-5 whistles in my cooker).
  2. In a small saucepan, heat 1tsp oil and add the tadka ingredients; once the seeds start to splutter, add the tadka to the cooked dal along with tamarind paste, turmeric, salt and 1 cup water. Simmer the mixture for another 7-8 minutes. Serve with steamed rice or roti.
I served my dishes with DK’s Sweet Potato rotis. I microwave peeled & cubed sweet potatoes with some water, drain and mash into pulp and mix the pulp with the atta (whole wheat flour) & just a little bit of salt. These are my all-time favorite rotis and I make them as often as possible. Try them, you wont be disappointed.
