How to make it

  • Heat the oil in a pressure cooker then slowly add asofoetida mustard seed cummin seeds n bay leave let it cook for 1 min till wonderful aroma starts raising or mustard seeds starts crackling Add finely chopped onions n garlic saute them till they are soft to quicken this process add a pinch of salt ... now add red chilly powder n garam masala powder mix well
  • Add roughly chopped tomatoes and cook till spices starts leaving oil this will take 3-5 mins on medium to low flame ....
  • Add soaked split peas along with salt to taste and mix all the spices well ...cook for another 2 to 3 mins then add 2 cups of water to this and close the lid of the pressure cooker .... cook for another 5-7 mins depending your pressure cooker ... the split peas should be completely cooked ....
  • The last and final stage is to add spinach .... When the whole pressure is gone of the cooker open it and 1st add sugar n green chilly and then add spinach to it .... Stir well cook for next 5 mix till spinach has mixed well with the split pea ... Cook on medium flame
  • Serve with Rice or flat Indian bread ( roti/ chappati) .....
  • Tip :
  • Spinach is totally optional .... i prefer to make with spinach .... Secondly spinach doesnt need too much of cooking as it would loose its vitamins .... Never chop spinach before hand when needed to cook chop it in that very moment ....
  • My way is to break the spinach with hands which is good to make salads even in this recipe if u have baby spinach u can break it with hand as by chopping it looses all the vitamins ....
  • This can stay in fridge for 3-4 days !!!! just warm it in microwave n serve ...
  • Enjoy !!!!
