Palakura pappu / spinach dal fry


Today i am going to write the recipe of pappu with spinach / Pala Kura…usually this recipe is same for almost all types of dal /pappu. This pappu can be made of kandi pappu (Toor dal) or pesarapappu (moong dal). I feel  Moong dal is more tastier than Toor dal.
I heard many of my friends saying that cooking dal curry is    a   big deal..but trust me..its a very very simple , easy and can be made quickly. For making dal curry or any other cooking by using dal is quiet comfortable if we have pressure cooker.If we use open vessel for cooking ..not an takes more time to cook..that's it!

preparation &cooking:30 mints ||  Serving :3-4 persons || cuisine:Andhra

pappu palakura
1 cup toor dal (kandi pappu)
1 bunch spinach  medium size(palakura katta)
1 Chopped onion
1 chopped tomato
4  green chilly  (long cut)
Small lemon size tamarind ball
Red chilli powder 1   tspn
Turmeric powder 1/2 tspn
Tadka/Talimpu/ Seasoning
oil  2tspns
Jeera 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds /Avalu 1/2 tsp
crushed garlic cloves  3
Dried red chilli  2-3
curry leaves
Wash dal in pressure cooker or in the cooking vessel in   which you  are going to cook. Now  add chopped spinach leaves  , chopped onions, tomato, tamarind,salt,chilli powder,turmeric powder and finally add  3 cups of water to it.Now on the flame and keep it high or medium.Waite for 3 whistles and off the stove.Waite till the lid opens. Now stir dal well  to see the cooking consistency. taste dal to  check salt ..if salt is less add as required..if you feel  not enough spicy..we can adjust it By adding more dry chillies in tadka /talimpu or you also can add little chilli powder and let it cook openly for few minutes.
Here we come to the final stage of cooking.Take a pan for tadka /talimpu add oil and let it heat. Now reduce flame to low and add  Crushed garlic cloves.Waite for few seconds  ..add broken red chilli, jeera, mustard seeds /avalu,let the mustard seeds spilt indicating that our talimpu has done. now you can add  hing(optional)to nice flavor . .add curry leaves to it an off the pour this talimpu in dal and mix it…haa that's it..palakura pappu is ready.
serve it hot in rice with ghee…hmmmm its tasty…it can be served with rice and rasam or chapati
Palakura pappu /spinach dal curry.
Health tip:Spinach in combination with tomato is not good for leads to the formation of stones in kidney.
(But for taste tomato is used with spinach)
