#Palak Moong Dal

Being vegetarians our major source of proteins is dal. It’s a challenge to make something different at times. When I saw this Thotakura-Amaranth leaves dal I was keen on making this dal.

Since we do not get Amaranth leaves here I was wondering how I will make this dal. Then I saw Padma’s line you can make with palak in place of Amarnath leaves.

This nutritious green leafy dal is best of both the worlds rich in protein and iron. A healthy, delicious side dish for steamed rice or with roti. And a wonderful addition to #Buffet on the Table !

In case you get Amarnath leaves use them but like I said I used palak which needs to be chopped fine.

Paired with Pulusu it tasted great.

Anyway please join us today in out Andhra Meal of #Potlakaya Koora or Snake Gourd Vegetable, #Palak Moong Dal and #Andhra Pachi Pulusu or Raw Tamarind Rasam with steamed rice of course!

Palak Moong Dal

A delicious and healthy dal that takes care of our protein and fibre in one go. Team it with pulusu if you like a tangy flavour!

For the Dal:

  • 2 cups palak leaves, chopped fine
  • 1 cup moong dal
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 green chillies slit

For the Tadka:

  • 1 tablespoon   oil
  • ½ teaspoon rai/mustard seeds
  • ½ teaspoon   jeera/cumin seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon   haldi/turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon urid dal
  • 2 dry red chillies
  • 1 spring curry leaves
  • Salt


  • Wash dal add 2 cups water, chopped onion, palak leaves, green chillies, turmeric, bring to full boil and reduce the flame to low and let it cook till done.
  • Remove from heat add salt and mix well with a spoon.
  • Heat oil in a small pan add mustard seeds, urid dal, cumin seeds, broken dry red chillies, curry leaves and fry for a while then add this seasoning to dal and palak mixture mix well.
  • Serve hot with rice and pickle, usually, any type of pulusu (tamarind gravy) is a great combination with this dal.


In case you get Amarnath leaves then try making this dal with it. I am sure it will taste better!
