Adventures in Vegetarian Cooking: Palak aur Dal (Lentils with Spinach)

The Indian cookbook I got recently has a bunch of vegetarian recipes, so I thought I would try one. I figured lentils (dal) would be a good place to start.

(Notice I caved to the pressure -- in my head -- and got coconut oil).

It was an easy recipe.  Everything but the spinach went into the superpot for seven hours of slow cooking.  I added the spinach at the end to wilt.  Along with some basmati rice and brussel sprouts, it was a complete and healthy vegetarian meal.

 Survey says...

Okay.  I was too timid on the spices -- I could have added more and Kevin says every dal he has had has been blended.  But on the to make again list for sure.
