Palakwali Moong Dal - Dal with Spinach

This is a Sanjeev Kapoor recipe from his book "How to Cook Indian." Check out the video of the Rachel Ray's show he was on to promote this book. We absolutely love these two chefs (uh, cooks!!).


Moon Dal - 1 cup
Spinach - 2 cups chopped
Minced Garlic - 1/2 tsp
Minced Ginger - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida - to taste
cummin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Red chillies - 3
green chillies - 1 big
Red onion - finely diced 1 medium


Pressure cook Moon dal along with spinach and a cup of water. In the meantime, heat a non-stick pan with olive oil. Add cummin seeds + asafoetida. When the cummin seeds turn golden, add ginger + garlic + onions. Saute for 5 mins. Add the chillies. Add the cooked dal mixture. Add turmeric and salt. Cover and simmer for 5 mins.
