Yesterday, got a chance to cook after long.. our cook had taken off..
i saw this interesting recipe in the paper and decided to try it out.. i love SPinach.. so this was Spinach daal..
here it is... was yummy, even if i do say so~~:D
What you need:
Spinach: 2 cups
Green chillies: 2
Cooked green gram dal/moong dal: 1/2 cup
Tamarind: 1 small sized ball
Urad dal: 1/2 tsp(for tempering)
Mustard seeds: 1/2 tsp(for tempering)
Oil - as much as you need
Salt- to taste
Curry leaves - 4-6
in a pan, heat oil and add mustard, urad dal and curry leaves. to this, add the chopped onions and green chillies. When they turn to a golden brown, add the chopped spinach and fry well for a couple of mins.
Put a pan and the green dal to cook in it, once that is done, add to the fried spinach and onion along with the tamarind(that has been soaked in water n strained), chopped tomato and salt. Boil for about five minutes..
If you want, you can grind the spinach.. but i like spinach as it is.. and it sure tastes yummmy with Roti and Steamed rice.. enjoy~~~
