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

Bay leaves – 2
- Green Chilli – 1
- Red Chilli – 2
- Ghee – 1 tsp
- Cumin Seeds – A pinch

- 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.
