This is a nutritious healthy vegetarian dish often eaten by Hindus, as the recipe originates from Gujarat state in India. It is tasty, filling and eaten with chapattis or rotla(these are made with millet flour bread) The spinach is of course optional and the dall can be cooked without it. But both cooked together adds that extra taste to the food. Traditionally the lentils are cooked as meal eaten at tea time back in India. It helps the digestive system. This is a very simple and light recipe with not a lot of ingredients required
The Dal can be soaked overnight and can be cooked in a pressure cooker.
