Best Blogger Tips

Roti and Dhal is one of my favorite combination when it comes to making an easy simple meal. Methi is a favorite green that I use a lot in my cooking. I either use the fresh leaves or the dried leaves(Kasuri Methi). It gives a great flavor to any dish and nutritious  too.
Most North Indian recipes that I prepare were learnt from from our Punjabi neighbors  and this again is her infuence for an easy recipe and a great tasting side dish for Rotis. When asked for this recipe I remember her mentioning to just cook the Dhal and the greens and some spices I like. I have used Masooor Dhal instead of the Toor Dhal.

  1. 3 cups finely chopped Methi/Fenugreek leaves
  2. ¾th cup Masoor Dhal
  3. 5 to 6 green chillies
  4. 2 teaspoon finely chopped ginger
  5. 2 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  6. ½ tomato
  7. ½ teaspoon turmeric
  8. 1 teaspoon cumin

  1. Cook the dhal along with rest of the ingredients except the greens and cumin.
  2. Heat a teaspoon of oil in a kadai/pan and add the greens and sauté until they whittle. Add the cooked dhal to it. Bring it to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Finally season the cumin in a teaspoon of ghee and add to the dhal. Add salt and serve.
