My favorite daal recipe.
I can't say, "my favorite palak recipe" though.
I love to eat green leafy vegetables.
Healthy, rich in viatmins and provides roughage for the digestive tract.
I have served up Palak saag with peanuts and Palak paneer already.
The other day I bougth some palak (Spinach), and I hadn't decided what to make of it.
I was planning to just boil it with ginger and tomatoes as a green soup, when I realised that I could add it to daal. I have always loved palak daal and I hadn't had it since I started the blog.
Couldn't have got a more opportuned time.
In fact the recipe is so simple, it is not even a recipe :-)
Boil daal with a pinch of turmeric and half an onion, chopped roughly and two chopped tomatoes.
Boil till daal is cooked. or Pressure cook it for quicker result.
Keep aside daal.
Wash and chop the palak roughly. Keep aside
In a frying pan, heat a little oil ( a Tsp should be more than enough).
Add half tsp each of jeera and methi and let sputter.
Add the palak and saute till all palak are limp liquid have dried.
Pour the daal, and let shimmer in low heat.
For the tadka:
Heat another kadhai or pan and add a 1 tsp of oil.
Add a red chilli and a bay leaf.
Add the remaining half of onion, finely chopped, and fry till golden brown.
Add a Tbs of ginger garlic paste and saute for about 2 minutes.
Add a little jeera-dhania powder( a tsp), and a half tsp of red chilli powder.
Now pour the daal palak from the pan...
Add salt to taste..
