Spinach is healthy and packed with all nutrients. This is a North Indian dish with the goodness of spinach and lentils. It is usually served as an accompaniment with  chapati or nan.

The ingrdients that you need are:

1 cup boiled tur dal

2 bunch of spinach

1 onion finely cut

half inch ginger

2 green chillies

2 cloves garlic

oil

salt according to taste

Method:

  • Blanch spinach and keep aside
  • When cool, grind to a paste along with green chilly, ginger and garlic. Keep aside.
  • Take oil in a kadai,add cumin seeds and the onions. Saute till pale in colour. Then.add the spinach puree and the cooked dal. Add salt and allow to simmer on a low flame.
  • It’s ready to serve. Makes an ideal accompaniment with rice too !
