This spinach dal or 'palak dal'
is a simple and easy recipe. I like
spinach and I think this is a yummy way to eat the greens and get the
nutrients such as iron.
You can use the spinach leaves along with the tender stems for this.
You may use pressure cooker for cooking spinach dal recipe as that really saves time.
You can also cook it on the stove top in a pot/pan if you wish.
For this spinach and lentil recipe, you can use split mung bean (mung dal or green gram dal) , red lentil( masoor dal or split yellow lentil (toor dal/tuvar dal/arahar dal).
You can use any one dal mentioned or a mixture of all the three dals. If you are using a mixture of the three dals, remember that mung dal and masoor dal cook faster than toor dal.
So washing and soaking toor dal for 15-20 minutes before cooking is better. All the three dals will get cooked at the same time.
I am using a mixture of the three dals mentioned above.
You can see below two methods
Cooking spinach/palak dal using pressure cooker.
Cooking spinach/palak dal on the stove top.
To make tempering
If cooking dals on the stove top without using pressure cooker, wash and soak dals for 15-20 minutes before cooking. This will reduce cooking time.
Serve hot with rice, roti etc.
Fresh lemon juice may be added instead of tamarind juice. Lime juice should be added after the heat is off and dal is readyEnjoy
