Sauteed Spinach with Dal

Sautéed spinach with dal is an easy recipe to make and this can be had with rice, chapattis, or it can be served as a side dish. This is my entry for JFI: WBB-Greens


  • Heat the pan with oil, season with mustard, cumin, curry leaves, 4 green chilies finely chopped, 2 broken red chilies, and 4 pods of sliced garlic.
  • Add 5- 6 chopped pearl onions, sauté them until it turns into light brown.
  • Add a bunch of chopped spinach leaves and sauté them. Cover cook for 5 minutes in low-heat. Once the spinach is cooked add 4 to 5 tbsp of mashed toor dal and cook for few more minutes.

Serve it with rice or chapattis!!!
