I had always tried palak with either moong or tuvar dal. This was the first time I tried it with Masoor dal. It was delicious.Hence forth I will always make it like this only. Also ingredients and few and it is easy to make. My 3 year old also loved it.

A simple everyday dal perked up with masalas. Pairs well with rice and roti both. Spinach enhances the taste and eye appeal both, so even kids are sure to like it.
