Simple Spinach Dhal

 Simple Spinach Dhal Recipe which can be an add on in the lunch menu. Recipe is made in the way its prepared by my mom.

Ingredients : 
  • Spinach : 1 bunch / 2 frozen cubes. 
  • Toor Dhal : 1 cup
  • Onion : 1 no
  • Tomato : 1 no (optional)
  • Green / Red Chillies : 5 to 6 Nos. 
  • Garlic : 4 to 5 pods
  • Salt to taste
For Seasoning : Oil, Mustard seeds,  Cumin seeds, Asafoetida, Urad Dhal, Curry Leaves

Method of Preparation :
  • Wash Toor Dhal and put that into a pressure cooker along with rest of the ingredients and cook for 1 or 2 whistles(i.e. as long you take to cook Dhal usually) 
  • Once the pressure is released  pour excess water if any into another bowl. (This excess water can be used for making Rasam.)
  • Mash it with a mashing stick. 
  • Prepare the seasoning and add it to the mashed spinach dhal. 
  • Serve hot with Rice. 
I prefer to eat this with Hot Rice adding a spoon of sunflower / ground nut oil on.
Also Known as : Pappu Kuraku, Kooraku Charu, Palak Pappu, Dhal Palak, Spinach Dal, Keerai Masiyal
Variations : You can use Vadayam seasons also.
