Moong Dal Palak

Moong Dal Palak is really very awesome and tasty recipe which is very easy to prepare for our day to day menu. Mostly I did not prefer dal, but after tempering of onion and tomato paste… its increase the taste of any dal. This dal is mostly famous in North India side more compare to other areas.
Mostly we used spinach with moong dal or sometime used mix lentils for this. After combo of lentils and spinach, it’s become great combination of protein, iron and minerals, a complete package of balanced food. I posted this recipe for blogging marathon 21 under this theme of cooking with Moong dal hosted by Srivalli.
You can serve this lentil recipe with chapatti or rice. Please check out Moong Dal Palak recipe, hope my friends like it.
