Spinach Dal Curry

Chana Dal: 1 cup
Garlic: 2 cloves
Turmeric Powder: 1/4 tsp
Spinach: 2 cups, chopped
Onion: 1 small, thinly sliced
Mustard Seeds: 1/4 tsp
Dry Red Chili: 2, broken
Salt: To taste
Oil: 2 tsp
Ghee: 1 tsp

Ingredients for Coconut Paste:
Coconut: 5 Tbsp, shredded
Green Chili: 2
Cumin Seeds: 1/4 tsp


In a blender blend all the ingredients under coconut paste with very little water and set aside
In a pressure cooker cook chana dal with garlic and turmeric powder (I waited for 7 whistles before I switched off the flame)
In a pan heat oil and splutter mustard seeds
Add onion, salt, and red chili to the pan and saute till onion turns light golden brown
Add  chopped spinach to the pan and let it cook for about 3 minutes, uncovered
Open the pressure cooker carefully (after all the pressure has been released) and pour the chana dal along with water left in the pressure cooker to the pan. Cover the pan and let it cook along with spinach for about 5 minutes
When it starts to boil add the coconut paste, mix well, check for salt, and add 1 tsp ghee. Let is stand covered for about 3-4 minutes before transferring to a serving dish.

I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeee this dish with white rice and some fried fish!! Hope you all will try this dish :)
