Ingredients to make South Indian Style Dal Palak

  • Palak - 250 grams
  • Toor dal - 50 grams, boiled
  • Sambar onions - 10 nos
  • Garlic - 4 to 5 pieces
  • Dry red chillies - 2 to 3 nos
  • Tomato - 1 nos
  • Oil - 1 tablespoon, for frying
  • Mustard seeds - 1 teaspoon
  • Jeera - 1 teaspoon
  • Pepper - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Hing - 1 pinch
  • Turmeric - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Curry leaves - 1 strand
  • Salt - as per taste

How to make South Indian Style Dal Palak

  1. Boil and cook the toor dal in a pressure cooker till 1 whistle blows.
  2. Heat oil (I used coconut or sesame oil) in a kadai. Add in the mustard seeds, jeera, pepper, hing and allow it to splutter.
  3. Then add the onions, garlic and dry red chillies, fry it for a few minutes. Add the roughly chopped tomato and fry till the raw smell goes away.
  4. Then add the roughly blanched palak and fry it for a few minutes.
  5. Remove it from the heat and allow it to cool.
  6. Now grind this mixture coarsely in a mixer/grinder. (Usually one quick round will do.)
  7. Heat a kadai. Add in the boiled toor dal and palak mixture, bring it to a boil. Turn off the stove.
  8. Serve it hot with rice or rotis.
My Tip: You can add some pieces of coconut while grinding to give this dish a creamy flavour.

It's a delicious recipe. But you're missing to add some steps on to add the turmeric, curry leaves, etc.
