Wash the moong dal and cook with enough water. I usually used to cook the dal in the pressure cooker.
But for the past few times, I have been cooking moong dal in a sauce pan and I am in live with the flavor in gives out. If cooking over the flame, add enough water to the dal and bring it to boil.
Then bring the heat to medium and cook for about 20 mins, until the dal is cooked and tender.
Wash the spinach and chop it finely.
If using frozen spinach thaw it in the microwave and keep aside.
Add oil/ghee in a pan and when heated, add cumin seeds, cinnamon and cloves. Fry it for a minute
Then add the onions, turmeric powder and green chilies.
Once the onions are fried, add the ginger garlic paste.
Saute for a minute and then add the tomatoes along with salt.
Cook until the tomatoes are mushy.
At this stage add the spinach and mix well. Let it cook for about 10 mins or until the spinach is tender Now add the cooked dal.
If needed, add water to bring the dal to the required consistency.
Let it come to a boil and then simmer for about 10 mins.
Turn off the flame and just before serving add some lime juice.
Serve with rotis, pulkas or rice!
