Palakura Peas Pappu/Spinach Peas Dal

I did this dal last week and my family loved it. So wanted to share this recipe with you all. Hope you try it and like it too. I did not have amchur powder at home so I replaced it with chat powder I had. But you can use amchur powder if you have it.

Spinach - washed and chopped
Peas - 1/2 cup
Tomato (optional) - 2 small
Toor dal - Cooked
Turmeric - 1/2 tea spoon
Cumin seeds - 1 tea spoon
Oil - 1 table spoon
Salt - 1 and 1/2 table spoon (you can add more depending on your taste buds)
Red Chilli powder - 1 and 1/2 table spoon (you can add more depending on your taste buds)
Chat masala - 1 table spoon (alternately you can use amchur/lime for sourness)
Coriander powder - 1 table spoon

Method of Preparation
1) wash and cook dal as you do regularly. Take a kadai, add oil and heat it. Add cumin seeds and then spinach and peas to it.
2) stir for a  minute or until spinach comes close, add tomatos to it. Add rest of the ingredients including salt to it. Add Dal also.
3) At this point make sure you mix in between and then cover the kadai, because it might spil on you. Once everything gets mixed properly and is at a good heat rate, then switch off the stove and take it in a serving bowl.

Your simple dal is ready to serve and eat.
