Dal Palak (Spinach Dal)
What a warm, easy dish to make. I love a little spice to my meals and this hit the spot. You can cut the spice by adding less spices. I added all of them! Easy and fast!
1. Saute all spices and vegetables, except spinach, until onions are clear
2. Add tomatoes, lentils, and water and simmer for 30 minutes
3. Add spinach and cook for 3 more minutes. Salt to taste
I am always looking for ways to add more veggies.
I added chopped carrots and celery to the onion as I sauteed them together with the spices.
I did have to make my own garam masala which is a mixture of spices. You can buy the spice in the store but if you have everything, I just make my own. This is the recipe I used.
