Spinach and Moong dal Curry

Spinach is my favorite leafy vegetable loaded with lot of vitamins and minerals. I love having spinach in the form of curry/dal. This recipe is not dal but curry, however it calls for moong dal.

Moong dal:-1/2cup
Spinach/palakura-2cups (Washed and cut)
Chopped onions-1/4cup
Green chillies-2
chopped cilantro-2t.s
garlic- chopped-1ts
dry coconut powder -2ts
Cumin seeds-1/2ts
Mustard seeds-1/2ts
Chana dal-1ts
Salt to taste
Chili powder-1/2t.s
Red chili-1
vegetable oil-2ts
Semi-cook moong dal, filter and keep aside. Now heat 2ts of oil in non stick pan and add cumin + mustard + chana + moog  dal+ red chili and wait until they splutter. Add onions and spring onions + Garlic and saute until they the onions become transparent. Add turmeric and cook for few min and add spinach. Close the lid if you want to retain the color of the spinach always cook in open vessel.  When the spinach is completely cooked add Moong dal and cook until it is cooked but its structure remain intact. Add Salt and red chili powder to taste and cook for few more minutes under simmer. Now the yummy curry is ready to serve it goes fine with rice/roti.
