Paruppu Keerai Masiyal/Spinach With Dhal

Paruppu Keerai masiyal is a very healthy, simple and easy dish to prepare. It can be prepared with any other keerai, but here I have used spinach(pasalai keerai). Since most of us living abroad do not get other varieties of keerai’s.

Here’s how to make paruppu keerai masiyal with step by step photos…



Ingredients

Thoor dhal
½ cup
Spinach
One big bunch
Onion
1 finely chopped
Green chillies
3 slit
Tomatoes
2 finely chopped
Turmeric powder
¼ tsp
Mustard seeds
¼ tsp
Cumin seeds
¼ tsp
Dry Red chillies
1 or 2
Curry leaves
3
Oil
1 tsp
Asafoetida
two pinches
Tamarind
2 tsp extract (thick)
Salt
As needed

Method

Clean and wash the spinach at least two to three times. Chop the spinach and keep it aside.
Wash the thoor dhal, add turmeric powder, onions, tomatoes, green chillies and cook in the pressure cooker for three whistles.


In sauce pan heat oil, add mustard seeds after it splutters, add cumin seeds, red chillies, curry leaves, asafoetida and sauté for 20 sec. Now add the cut spinach leaves and sauté for 2 min, immediately add the cooked dhal, tamarind and mix well.


Bring it boil and switch off the stove. You can mash it with masher or matthu. My mom uses kal chatty which by itself gives an excellent texture to the dhal which cannot be replace by any thing else.


Yummy paruppu keerai masiyal is ready to be served. It can be served with white rice, chappathi’s and rotis.
