Palak with Tori dal (Spinach with Pigeon peas)

I love the simplicity of this dish. A good friend of mine made this for an event and I loved the taste. When I got the recipe, I loved it even more since it was healthy and so easy to cook! This dish was done in 15 mins and goes well with rice/ roti/ bread.


1/2 cup frozen tori (pigeon peas)
1- 10 oz box frozen palak (spinach)
1 small onion, chopped fine
Marble size tamarind (I substitued with 2 green tomatoes)
2 green chillies, slit
1"ginger, chopped fine
1/4 cup toor dal
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp hing (asafoetida)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 dried red chillies
salt to taste

How it's made:

Wash toor dal. In a pressure cooker pan, add pigeon peas, spinach, toor dal, green chillies, ginger, onions & tamarind. Pressure cook 10 minutes.
In a "Phanna davlo"or frying pan, heat oil. Add mustard seeds. Once it splutters add hing, garlic and red chillies. Add seasoning to the cooked dal/palak. Boil. Adjust salt to taste.

Serves: 4
