A tasty dal, made with masoor dal and greens. Spinach and fenugreek leaves are a good source of vitamin a, iron and calcium. All dals are rich sources of protein and energy. Masoor dal is easier to digest than arhar dal. It is therefore a better choice for you when you're pregnant, as it will provide you with protein and yet not leave you feeling uncomfortable after you have eaten. This dal is a slightly dry preparation and if you want to have it with rice, you may need to add a little more water to "thin" it down.

Something different from the everyday dals.. I love making this occasionally as lot of greens go in this dal.. Masoor dal is also loved by my family a lot so this combination is very good.. The masals impart a very simple flavour in this dal..
