Masoor Dal with Spring Mix Greens

Masoor Spring Mix Dal
Whenever I plan a meal, I make sure our diet has more proteins and leafy greens.  One of the combinations I like is Dals/Lentils with greens like Spinach and Methi.  Sometimes I make Panchmel Dal with five types of lentils.  Today I tried something new in my kitchen.. Whole Masoor Dal with Spring Mix salad mix.
Try this recipe with a few tweaks of your own, any lentil or bean of your choice with your favorite leafy greens.

Spring Mix or any other leafy greens - about 2 cups
Onion - 1 small
Ginger Garlic Paste - 2 tsp
Coriander/Dhane Powder - 1 tsp
Cumin/Jeera Powder - 1 tsp
Chat Masala - 1 tsp
Green Chilli Paste - 1/2 tsp
Black Pepper Powder - 1/4 tsp

How to cook Masoor Dal with Greens:
  • Cook Masoor Dal with 3 - 4 cups water until soft.  I generally use a pressure cooker for Dals, as it saves time.
  • Finely chop onions and spring mix greens.
  • Heat about 1 tbsp oil in a pan.  Add onions and ginger garlic paste.  Saute till onions turn soft.  Now add coriander powder, cumin powder, chat masala and black pepper powder.
  • Saute for a minute or two and add chopped greens.  Cook it covered until the greens wilt.  Lastly, add cooked masoor and salt.  Bring it to a boil and cook until you get the desired consistency.  Serve Masur Dal with rice and/or chapati.
