Take about 1 cup of dry toor dal (yellow split peas)
I use a pressure cooker to cook the dhal.
Once cooked, this is how it looks.
You can blanch some fresh spinach or use a block of frozen spinach as shown. If using frozen one, thaw and keep aside.
Chop some fresh ginger and green chillies.
Heat some oil and add a tsp of cumin seeds & half tsp of urad dhal.
Fry the fresh ginger and green chillies.
Mix in the cooked toor dhal and the spinach. Add a tsp of salt, according to taste.
Add a pinch of 'Hing' (asafoetida). And bring the dhal to boil.
Squeeze in half a lemon juice into the dhal.
Spinach Dhal is ready. Serve with rice or roti or as soup.
