Like I have said Lentils are an inseparable part of an Indian Meal.  The lentils are called dals and we use a quite a few of them in our everyday meals. Not only they take care of nutrition they also give the variety we all crave for.

Season and local produce play a great part in the homemaker’s decision of how to cook food. A good cook can use in various proportions the same ingredients and give you a delicious variety of food. here.I have used the same dal and palak and shared Kuttu yesterday. Do check it out

    I try adding palak in most of the dishes so that I can feed Sruti something healthy. Adding palak to moong dal is a nice idea and it would be amazing with rice..

    I LOVE spinach dal. It is so comforting and hearty. Perfect with rice, roti, poori or even just as is 🙂 I make it often with toor dal but love it with moong dal too.

    I love dal palak. I usually make it using toor dal. The one where I use moong dal tends to be of a sabji than a dal. Love this recipe of yours.. a nice soupy dal with spinach..healthy and filling.
