Palak Dal Fry.. (Spinach With Lentil Curry)

Palak dal fry very healthy and easy dish. Few days back i got lot of spinach from market and wanted to finish every thing with in 2 or 3days and i had no option what to cook except few dishes from spinach. Then i though lets make palak dal with little bit of twist and it was tasty but different from palak dal. Usually i cook thick palak dal, but this time i added little more water to make it watery and it was going very well with plain rice and papad...

In the mean time you prepare tarka. In a deep fry pan, add oil, When the oil is hot add cumin, mustard seeds and curry leafs, when they splutter, add onion and green chilies fry to golden brown and keep it aside to cool it down.
