Spinach with Mango and Dals (Lentils)

Trying to avoid food which contains more oil or butter for some days. here is the healthy, easy to make and tasty :-) Dish. I had frozen unriped mango pieces and fresh washed spinach from costco so making this just took less than 10 mins of my time.


1/4th cup Moong Dal (
1/4th cup Chana Dal (Bengal gram)
4 cups of chopped spinach
1/2 cup unriped mango pieces
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
salt to taste

for seasoning/tempering
1 tsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
3 to 4 whole red/green chillies (adjust to your spice level)
pinch of asafoetida
curry leaves (optional)
1 tsp minced garlic

1) Wash both the Dals and pressure cook with chopped spinach, unriped mango pieces, turmeric powder Do not overcook. You should just make sure that Dal just cooks so that we retain the shape of the chana Dal.

2) For seasoning, heat oil, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds. Once they splutter add minced garlic, chillies, asafoetida and pour on the cooked Dal-spinach and slightly mash the Dals.

Server Hot with Steamed white/brown rice.
