Palak Dal

My friends and family never let go of a chance to tease me about my love for any variety of dal or lentil soup. They lovingly chide that – Aish is on a “dal diet”. Fact is, I never diet. I eat what I like to eat and Dal is one of my favorite comfort food. I can easily survive on dal. What’s not to love about lentils!! It’s healthy, yummy, nutritious and super easy to make. They easily absorb flavors from other foods and seasonings. As a result, you can never really run out of ways to make them.


1 cup Chana Dal (Gram lentils)

1 cup Palak (baby spinach) finely chopped

2 tomatoes chopped

1 tbsp grated ginger

2 to 3 Dried red chilies

3 tbsp oil (I used olive oil)

1/2 tsp jeera powdered (cumin)

2 to 3 tsp dhaniya powdered (coriander)

1/4 tsp garam masala (optional, if want to make more masala rich chana dal)

2/3 tsp turmeric powdered (haldi)

4 cup water

Salt to taste
