Keerai Sambar

With Palak we can try a few things. Its flexible and adds a lot of taste. So today my hubby was the chef and we prepared Keerai Sambar. Just like other sambars with the addition of Palak.
Palak - 1 cup
Toor Dal - a handful
Tamarind - lemon sized
Sambar Powder - 2 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Urad Dal - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking

Pressure cook toor dal with some turmeric powder till mushy. Keep it aside.
Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and once it splutters add urad dal, and tamarind extract.
Add sambar powder and salt and allow to boil till the raw smell is gone.
Add blanched spinach and dal and allow to boil for 5 minutes and switch off heat.
Serve hot with rice and papad or any fried vegetable.

Bon Appetit!!
