Dhal Palak / Spinach Dhal⁣

Super simple one pot (I made it in Instant Pot ) dish that’s warm, comforting and full of nutrients from lentils, this is the simplest and yummmiest dhal! This dhal reeks of flavours from 3 different lentils, tangy tomatoes and spinach and goes well with rice or naan. Last night, we had it with homemade chapati. ⁣

Ingredients: ⁣

  1. 8 tbsp mixed lentils. I used 2 tbsp split pigeon peas, 3 tbsp red lentils and 3 tbsp split Mung dhal. You can use a single variety of lentil too. ⁣
  2. 2 tomatoes⁣
  3. 2 handfuls spinach ⁣
  4. Oil to sauté ⁣
  5. 1 tbsp cumin seeds ⁣
  6. 2 cloves of garlic ⁣
  7. 1 tsp turmeric ⁣
  8. 1 tbsp chilli powder ⁣
  9. Salt to taste ⁣

Method: ⁣

  1. Wash and cook lentils with tomatoes in Instant pot for 20 minutes or pan or pressure cooker. ⁣
  2. Once cooked, heat oil in a pan and fry cumin and garlic. ⁣
  3. Add spinach, salt, turmeric and chilli powder and cook until spinach is wilted. ⁣
  4. Add cooked dhal and let it boil for 5-8 minutes. ⁣

You can add coconut milk for flavour but that’ll over power the beautiful flavours of tomatoes and spinach.
