DAL PALAK

DAL PALAK

Dal and Palak are very protein rich food and aids in good digestion. This is very good for people who wants to have something light for dinner with rotis. Mixed with rice and a bit ghee serves excellent nutrious food for the toddlers too.


Ingredients :
Moong Dal - 1/4 cup
Toovar Dal - 1 cup
Palak - 1 bunch chopped
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Onion - 1 medium chopped
Garlic - 2 cloves chopped
Tomato - 1 medium chopped
Green Chilli - 1-2 nos chopped
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilli Powder - a pinch
Red chilli flakes - 1/4 tsp
Salt

Preparation:

Wash and cook dal in pressure cooker for 2 whistles or till cooked. Leave ot to cool down. Then in a pan add in a tbsp of oil and add cumin seeds. Once seeds start to splutter, add in the onions and garlic and saute till onions are slightly transparent. Then add in the green chilli, and the powders (turmeric and chilli). Saute for about 5-6 seconds on low flame and add in the tomatoes. Saute till tomaotes turn mushy and add in the palak. Cook on low flame till palak turns soft. Then add in the dal including the water and cook for about 5-7 mins. Add salt, red chilli flakes and serve hot with rotis or chapathis....

Cheers.

Note :
For LASOONI DAL PALAK - add in 3 large garlic cloves and the proceure follows the same.
You can also pressure cook palak with dal. But i prefer this way so that palak is not over cooked.
