A sumptuous preparation of masoor dal and mixed greens, the Hariyali Dal is a superb accompaniment for rice as well as Indian breads.
It has a distinct flavour due to the combination of coriander and fenugreek, perked up with an assortment of spice powders and tangy tomatoes.

It is amazing how the mild bitterness of fenugreek leaves happens to be very favourable to this recipe. Moreover, you will love the fact that it can be made easily using the Microwave oven!
