2 bunches (about 4 cups) spinach, washed and chopped
1 cup moong dhal (lentils), soaked
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp masala powder
Lemon juice (optional)
1 tsp mustard seeds
2 dried red chillies
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
3-4 cloves garlic, sliced
1/2 tsp asafoetida powder
Boil the dhal until soft. Then mash it lightly.

Temper the other ingredients and mix them with the spinach and dhal.
Optionally stir in some lemon juice and serve.
