4-5 curry leaves
A pinch of asefoida(hing)
2 cup palak washed and chopped
1 tbspn Oil
Salt to taste
1 1/4cup of water.(depends)

In a pressure cooker take oil, once hot add jeera and mustard seeds. the seeds starts crackling add garlic, greenchillies,hing , curry leaves and palak and fry for 2-3 mins.Now add the washed moong dal, salt and water. Close the pressure cooker and let it cook till 5-6 whistle.
Once cooked open the lid and check water consistency.
Serve with Rice and pickles or any side dish if needed.

P.S: Consistency depends on each individual how they prefer their curry so if you want to add water feel free.
You can chage the moong dal/ spinach and substitute with other dal/green leafy vegetables for variation.Go ahead and try and explore different options .
