This is for Kushal who requested some more recipes using some of the wide variety of greens available- "I can't have saag / palak paneer / sai bhaji ALL the time," he writes.
2 tsps vegetable oil
1 bunch of dill /shepu about 3-4 cups of chopped dill
2 tablespoons of yellow split mung lentils / moong dal
1/2 tsp jeera
6 cloves of garlic chopped fine
1 green chilli chopped
1/2 tsp salt
Soak the moong dal for half an hour. Wash and chop the dill in the meanwhile. Heat two teaspoons of oil in a pan, add the garlic and saute for a minute then add the jeera and green chilli. When the jeera sizzles add the chopped dill and moong dal. Cover tight and cook on low heat for about 20 minutes till the moong is soft and the dill is cooked. (Do not add water unless you absolutely have to and if so just a tablespoon.) Add the salt and give it a good stir. Serve.
