Paat Shaak Dal - Lentil with Jute Greens

Got a bunch of paat shaak ( tender jute leaves ) from the local vegetable market. The first thing that comes to your mind for paat shaak is preparing a typical bong fritter which goes well with rice and dal. But this time I was in health mode ;) and decided not to take the fry route. Instead use it in dal and boy.. it was amazing !!!


  • Masoor dal - 1 cup
  • Paat Shak / Jute greens - a bunch
  • Garlic - 2 cloves, chopped
  • Tomato - 1, chopped
  • Green Chillies - 2, chopped
  • Turmeric, Salt, Sugar - As required
  • Oil - 1 tsp

Remove the leaves from the stem and wash thoroughly . Boil the dal / lentil with salt, turmeric and green chilli and keep aside.
Add oil in a wok and when it is smoking, add the garlic. let it become brown.

Add the chopped tomatoes and the greens and stir fry for a minute. Net add the boiled dal with a cup of water and mix well with the greens.

Let it boil for 5 minutes till the leaves are tender and the dal thickened a bit. adjust the seasoning. Serve hot with Rice.
