Step 1
Soak the Yellow Split Peas (2 cup) for 10-15 minutes.
Step 2
In a pressure cooker, add the lentils, Ground Turmeric (1/4 teaspoon), and Water (2 cup). Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the lentils become soft and mushy. Mash them with a spoon and set aside.
Step 3
In the pressure cooker, add Oil (3 tablespoon), Cumin Seeds (1 teaspoon), Onion (1), Green Chili Pepper (1), Fresh Ginger (1 inch), and Garlic (3 clove). Cook for about 2 minutes, until onion becomes transparent and soft.
Step 4
Add the Tomato (1), Salt (to taste), Ground Turmeric (1/4 teaspoon), Red Chili Powder (1/2 teaspoon), Asafoetida (1/4 teaspoon), and Ground Coriander (1/2 teaspoon). Saute for another 2 minutes, until the tomatoes become soft and mushy.
Step 5
Add Fresh Spinach (1 cup) and saute for 7-8 minutes, until the spinach becomes soft and stops releasing water on a medium flame.
Step 6
Mix the lentils with the spinach, and add Water (3/4 cup) depending on how thick or thin you want the dal to be. Add Garam Masala (1/4 teaspoon).
Step 7
Check and adjust seasoning. Simmer the palak dal for 6-7 minutes.
Step 8
Serve palak dal with hot paratha and a side vegetable dish or salad or raita. Enjoy!
