Kale Dal

This is actually a recipe for Dal Palak that I saw on TV sometime back.But I had only kale with me and I substituted it for palak.It was tasty.Here goes the recipe.

Kale:1 cup chopped
Toor Dal:2 tbspn
Green Chilly:1
Chilly Powder:1/2 tspn
Jeera(Cumin):1/2 tspn
Ginger:1/2 inch
Garlic:1 clove
Asafoetida:1 pinch
Salt:as per taste


Chop kale,onion,ginger and mince garlic.Slit green chilly.Cook Dal in a pressure cooker.

Heat oil in a pan.Add jeera,asafoetida and greenchilly.As jeera splutters,add onion,minced garlic and ginger.Saute.As it turns brown,add chilly powder,salt and dal.Mix well and saute.If you are adding the dal water,bring to a boil and /otherwise add chopped kale.Add little water as kale +salt releases water,but dal absorbs this.Boil till kale is cooked for a few minutes.Adjust salt.Serve with rice.
