Hi.. I liked the recipe... However I tried with soaked moong dal and it turned out superb.. I wasnt sure if the dal would cook if i just fry it..

This is such a delicious recipe and very nutritious recipe too - but the moong dal will not be cooked - I added a little water and cooked it 3/4 and after that only added the spinach. Adding the numeg definitely enhances the flavor.

You should soak the daal for 3-4 hours before cooking. Alternatively you can also try this with channa daal. With channa dal you should soak the daal for 8-10 hours. Adding couple of tomatoes will enhance the taste as well
