Dal Palak, Using Pressure Cooker

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Saturday, February 02, 2013

Another Quick, Easy and delicious recipe using the Kitchen King - Pressure Cooker. As i told in my previous post, Kuttu loves Dal. So, i try to give him as many varieties as possible with his favorite Dal. He is a happy kiddo, with a plate of Dal-Rice and Ghee!!! Makes his Mommy's Job pretty Easy. :)
1 Bunch of Palak Leaves/Spinach
3/4 Cup Moong Dal
2-3 Cloves Garlic, Chopped
1 Green Chilli
Salt to taste

1 tbsp Peanut Oil/Gingely Oil
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
3-4 Red Chilies, Long Variety, Broken into Two
1 tbsp urad dal
hing, turmeric each a pinch
  • Wash the Palak leaves/spinach and Chop roughly. Take Dal and Palak Leaves in a Pressure Cooker, Add garlic, Chili and Salt. Add 2 Cups of Water. Pressure Cook for 3-4 whistles.
  • Once the pressure drops, Open the Cooker, Mash the Dal-Palak with the back of the laddle. 
  • Heat oil given under "Tempering" in a Pan, Splutter mustard seeds, add hing, turmeric. Add Urad dal and broken red chilies. 
  • Once the dal is brown, add the sizzling tempering over the dal. Serve Hot with Rice with a dollop of ghee.
