Lentil Dal with Spinach


Lentil Dal with Spinach

Start with rinsing 1/2 cup masoor dal. Then, put it into a pressure cooker along with 2 cups water, 1 teaspoon turmeric powder, and a pinch of asafoetida. Cook for 3 whistles or until the lentils are completely cooked. In the meantime, chop a bunch of fresh spinach and set it aside. Once the lentils are done, heat 2 tsp oil in a pan. Add 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1 tsp chopped garlic, and 1 green chili. Once the cumin seeds splutter, add the chopped spinach. Sauté it until it wilts. At this stage, add cooked dal, salt to taste, and 1/2 tsp garam masala. Stir and let it simmer for 5 minutes. Serve warm with roti or rice.
