Palong Daal


While cooking daal, added some palong shaak (fresh Spinach leaves) to it and a healthy dish is made quickly. My husband loved it !!


  • Arhar Daal - 1 handful
  • Fresh Spinach - 1 bunch
  • Hing (asafoetida) - a pinch
  • Bay leaves - 2
  • Green Chilli - 1
  • Red Chilli - 2
  • Ghee - 1 tsp
  • Cumin Seeds - A pinch
  • Sugar - 1 tsp
  • Salt & Turmeric - As required

Clean and wash the spinach thoroughly. Pressure cook the daal with green chilli and salt and keep aside.
Add ghee to a hot kadai. Now add hing to it followed by bayleaves, red chilli and cumin seeds.
When masalas crackle, add Spinach and stir fry for a minute.

Add boiled daal and mix well. 

 Add a pinch of turmeric and boil till the spinach is wilted. You can add some more water if required. Adjust the seasoning.

At the end, add a tsp of sugar. You may top it up with another tsp of ghee just before turning off the heat.
Have it with rice or roti.
