A very popular dish across all parts of India and definitely among my favourites. I have tried it out loads of times and decided I might as well put it up on my blog.

Spinach - 1 bunch
Paneer [Cottage Cheese] - 250 gms, diced
Moong dal - 1 tbsp, soaked in water
Onion - 1, diced
Finely chopped onions - 1 tbsp
Tomato - 1, diced
Green chilie - 1
Garlic pods - 2
Red chilie powder - 1 tsp
Dhania powder - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp
Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp
Ghee - 1 tsp

-> In a vessel,bring water to boil and add the spinach leaves and moong dal. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes
-> In a pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil and fry garlic, green chilie, diced onion and tomatoes. Allow to cool and blend along with spinach and dal
-> Heat the remaining oil in the pan and temper cumin seeds. Fry the finely chopped onions.
-> Add dhania powder and fry for a minute. Add the blended mixture along with salt and allow to boil on a low heat.
-> Add the chilie powder and allow to simmer for few minutes.
