Lasuni Palak Dal

Garlic is one of my favourite flavour . I just love its taste and aroma . It has many health benefits too . And when it pairs with palak it is power packed with healthy nutrients .  Today someone asked me what food I dislike . And I burst out laughing  .  After all I’m a foodie and a food blogger . Coming back to the recipe I adapted this recipe from Santoshi . I had tasted this at Amma’s place and I had to share the recipe in the space . Below here I have used Moong dal but you may pair it with split masoor dal too . Stay tuned for more interesting recipes !!!

Recipe adapted from : Santoshi Nayak
