The ever-popular combo of greens and dal makes this a very nourishing dish to serve your child. Onions add a mild crunch to the Palak Masoor Dal, while ginger-garlic paste and a moderate amount of spice powders impart an appealing flavour to it.


After all, your child is becoming choosy now, and will also seek dishes that please the taste buds! So, we need to pay attention to taste as well. What’s more, this delicious dal also scores high on the nutrient chart.


Spinach is rich in vitamin A, essential for healthy eyes and skin, as well as iron, which is essential for building haemoglobin, while masoor dal is a good source of protein, an important building block of the body.
