Methi / fenugreek greens in mixed dal with heeng ka tadka!

You can also use palak / spinach. I have tried with both using a mix of dals- toor/ arhar, green and yellow mung, and masoor.

Daal(toor/masoor/mung or a mixture of all of them) 1 cup
1 Onion chopped
Fenugreek(methi) leaves or Spinach (palak) 1 cup
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 tsp turmeric
Salt to taste
Mustard oil / ghee- 1 tsp
Cumin / mustard seeds and hing for tempering

You can skip onion and ginger-garlic if you so wish, and can even add one chopped tomato.

Add daal and greens with the chopped onion, tomato, ginger garlic paste, salt and turmeric to the pressure cooker. Cook for one whistle and simmer for 2 mins.
Heat ghee/ oil in a tempering ladle, add the tempering, turn off gas and add heeng / asafoetida (be careful and do not add more than a pinch!or you will spoil the taste)
Serve hot with rice / as side dish with rotis.
