Sometimes the most satisfying meals are the easiest ones using simple ingredients and nothing too fancy. The humble dal is my go to on cold nights when I get home and am thinking of what to make for dinner. It is such a versatile dish that goes well either with steamed rice or even roti and bread if you don’t have either. But Palak Dal is probably my most favourite of dals.
My palak dal recipe uses moong dal and is a turmericy, garlicky curry that really is warming. Add a teaspoon of ghee or clarified butter to enhance the flavours even more.
I’ve used moong dal as I find it lighter to digest that toor dal, but this recipe will work well with toor dal too.
I usually get a bit bag of spinach for my Palak Dal and also make my favourite Hara Bhara Kebab. I serve this with steamed white rice and a dollop of ghee. Such an amazing combination and you get your fill of spinach in one meal too, healthy and delicious.
