Spinach moong dal recipe, palak moong dal
Spinach moong dal is one of the favorite dishes of sanvi. I used to feed this dal right from when she was one year old. I add few drops of ghee in it. When she eats it well, I’ll have an ultimate satisfaction that sanvi has eaten a healthy food.
Spinach moong dal is very easy to make. The ghee enhances the flavor. This dal goes along well with rice and chappathi.
I make spinach recipes often, and this dal is also a favorite recipe of my family. I learned it from my bangalore friend who loves this dal so much. She taught me this recipe when I asked her some ideas for sanvi’s lunch. Hope you all like this spinach moong dal recipe.
