Spinach Dal (Palakura Pappu)

Taste wise or health wise also. I love green leaves very much. Here i am getting mostly spinach. I can prepare so many variety dishes like fry, chutney etc. Among that this is well known and a favorite dish for all Indians. This is very easy and healthy recipe. Here is my recipe:

Spinach Dal:
Prep & Cooking time: 20mts
Serves : 2
Cuisine : Andhra

1 cup toordal (Kandipappu)
a pinch of turmeric powder
1 chopped tomato (cut into 6 pieces)
2 cups chopped spinach (wash and chopp)
5 garlic pods (crushed)
1 tsp red chilli powder
salt as per taste

For Talimpu/Tadka/Popu:
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp jeera
1 tsp mustards
a pinch of hing
few curry leaves

1. Wash toordal twice, add all the remaining ingredients, cook on pressure for 10 mts or till 2 wissitles.

2. After air releases, put the tadka with talimpu ingredients, mix to above cooked toordal, mix gently.

3. Serve hot with rice or chapatis.
