dal-palak+recipe 
  I make this Dal palak these days very often. Aj loves it. We tasted this kind of dal palak in which palak is pureed and cooked with dal in GRT grand at Chennai. Aj loved it very much. So I tried in my own way and got hooked up to this recipe. The one we had in the restaurant had more of palak than I am using, so more greener. So its your choice, if you want more greener, add more palak. You can double the quantity of palak for this given recipe. Now to the recipe instead of my boring storiesChatterbox. Kind of feeling low in blogging, so hang on with these simple recipes I post until my spirit level goes up :)
Dal+palak+recipe

Indian Lunch
Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 15 mins    Serves: 2

Salt  1 & 1/4 tsp 
Ghee  1 tsp 
Jeera  1 tsp 

 

Method

  1. Wash the palak and remove the stem. Tear the leaf and take out the thick stem in the middle too if possible to make sure it gets cooked easily. Fry in 1/2 tsp oil along with green chillies. Pressure cook moong dal upto 3 whisltes.

Notes

  • You can also squeeze lemon before you serve the dal. In that case, be sure to add more spiciness (green chilli) to balance the
  • You can replace ginger garlic paste in this recipe with either finely chopped ginger or garlic. In that case, add it immediately after jeera crackles.
  • You can also add red chilli powder instead of green chillies. But the colour will be differing.

Top with ghee if desired and serve hot with steamed basmati rice and your choice of subzi. You can have it with roti as well.

  8. Lovely pictures as always. If you want the dish to look a brighter green, just grind the palak into a puree, and then add it to the hot daal. The less you cook the palak, the brighter the colour will be! Please keep the great posts coming. :)
