Monday, August 22, 2011


I needed dal for sambar and dal. I felt it was easy to make this way as I can cook dal only once.

Ingredients:
Toor Dal 1cup
Spinach 1 bunch
Onion 1 big sized(optional)
Garlic 6 (optional)
Turmeric 2 pinches
Urad dal 1 teaspoon
Mustard seeds 1 teaspoon
Red Chillies 3
Hing 2 pinches
Curry Leaves 6 to 8
Tamarind paste 2 teaspoons
Red chilli powder 1 teaspoon
Oil 2 teaspoons
Salt as needed


Preparation:
1. Wash the spinach leaves. Cut the spinach leaves into small pieces. Cut onion and garlic into small pieces. Cook dal in pressure cooker and keep it aside.
2. Heat a pan add oil after oil is hot add urad dal, mustard seeds, red chilli broken into 3 pieces, curry leaves and hing. When mustard seeds spulter and dal changes to golden color. Add the chopped onions and garlic, mix well.
3. When the onions become translucent. Add chopped spinach pieces.
4. When the spinach is fully cooked add the cooked dal and mix well.

5. Add the tamrind paste, tumeric powder and  salt. Mix well. Add red chilli powder and cook for 10 minutes. If you want dal softer and thinner add water and cook for more time.
