This is a very simple recipe but the taste is delicious!
Thuar dal- ¾ cup
Split Green chillies-4
Finely chopped onion-1
Finely crushed tomato-2 cups
Small garlic flakes-10
Finely chopped coriander leaves- half cup
Finely chopped keerai-3 cups
Turmeric powder- half sp
Salt to taste
Cumin seeds- half sp
Asafotida –half sp
Pressure cook the dal.
Heat a pan and pour the oil.
Add the cumin seeds and when they splutter add the onion and fry them to golden brown.
Add the tomatoes with the green chillies, asafotida, turmeric powder and the garlic flakes and fry them until the tomatoes are mashed well and the oil floats on the surface.
Add the dal and when it starts to boil add the keerai with enough salt.
Boil for some minutes until the keerai is cooked without changing its green colour.
Pour a spoon of ghee and serve.
Either palak keerai or mulaikkeerai will give great taste to this dish.
