Today's post is all about simple tasty food. Bored of eating dal the same way ,Dal Palak is something so easy to make and full of nutrition.I have to constantly find new ways to make my 5 year old day some veggies and this is yet another attempt. There are many ways to make this dish. You could boil the Palak and dal together or make it the way I made it.
Spinach - 1 bunch ( blanched in hot water )
Masur dal - 1 cup
Turmeric - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Garlic - 3 pods chopped
Salt - to taste
Refined oil - 1 tbsp
Green chiilies - 2-3 nos ( I used garden fresh red chillies)
Boil the dal in a pressure cooker with some salt and turmeric.
In a pan heat the oil ,splutter the cumin seeds.
Next add the chopped garlic and blanched spinach.
Fry the spinach for 5 mins and then add the boiled dal.
Add the chillies and let the dal simmer for a while.
Yummy delicious dal palak ready in minutes.
Hi Archita, lovely recipe,just like to know,did you add the dal to the spinach with the cooking liquid..ReplyDelete
Hi Myra, thanks for dropping by! The water in which you blanch the spinach needn't be used. But u got to add the entire boiled dal..along with the liquid bit. Hope this helps.Delete
There was a time when I used to make so much this Palak Dal...But I always used to make it with Moong Daal....:)ReplyDelete
