Dal Palak

Since few months am a happy owner of Mallika Basu's Miss Masala cookbook..While going through this beautiful cookbook i got hooked with this dal palak which sounds truly very easy,with simple ingredients also at the same time its goes for quick cooking process, i loved the simplicity of this dal palak and tried out for our today's lunch..As the recipe went for frozen spinach,immediately i just went through my freezer,fortunately i got a pack of already smashed spinach cubes..Finally i prepared this dal with those smashed spinach cubes and enjoyed this dal palak with some spicy chicken masala for our today's lunch..Both together turned out our lunch truly prefect...This dal palak was completely different from my version of dal palak,am happy to try this dal palak as everyone at home loved it...Sending to DNSW-D hosted by Akila..

Dal Palak

1/2cup Moongdal
1/4cup Masoor dal
1/2tsp Turmeric powder
6nos Garlic cloves (chopped)
1no Onion (chopped)
1no Tomato (chopped)
10nos Frozen spinach cubes
1tsp Ghee
1/2tsp Chilly powder
1/2tsp Lemon juice
Salt

Pressure cook both dalswith turmeric powder until soft,meanwhile heat oil in a pan, add the cumin seeds and chopped garlic cloves (keep few aside),sauté for few minutes, add the chopped onions and chopped tomatoes, cook until they turns soft..immediately add the frozen spinach cubes and salt,cook everything in medium flame, now add the already cooked dals to the cooked spinach,add enough water if needed..Cook for few minutes..

Heat the ghee, add the remaining chopped garlic cloves and red chilly powder,fry for few minutes..Once the garlic turns brown, add this tempering to the dal..Finally add the lemon juice and serve with rice..
