palakura pappu recipe | spinach dal | palak dal | south indian style palakoora pappu

The recipe called Dal doesn`t need any introduction which is quite famous for us. This is one of my mother recipe which she cooks often. On Mondays, I usually cook a complete vegetarian lunch and dal stands in the menu definitely. Though I cook this often couldn`t take pictures every time, so finally, last week without forgetting took stepwise pictures and sharing here in the blog.
Spinach dal is my favourite, in fact, loves mom`s version lot and tried to cook in her style and the dal came out so good. Dal is protein packed and healthy too. There are many versions in cooking spinach dal but next time try this and share your comments.
