About this recipe:
This is a comforting everyday dal. My kids love this dal mixed with cooked plain rice and ghee. Spinach adds texture, fibre, and essential nutrients.

1 large bunch (15 – 20 leaves) fresh spinach leaves, roughly shredded
1 teaspoon turmeric powder (haldi)
Salt to taste
1 inch piece of fresh ginger, grated
2 green chillis, slit in halves
4 cups water
2 teaspoons ghee or oil
1 teaspoon cumin (jeera) seeds
1 teaspoon mustard (rai) seeds
