"This is a comforting everyday dal. My kids love this dal mixed with cooked plain rice and ghee. Spinach adds texture, fiber, and essential nutrients."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

As written, the ingredients are good, but with the addition of chopped fresh tomatoes, diced onions, ground turmeric, and a few handfuls of diced zucchini it becomes spectacular! Also, I like to cook my spices (including curry leaves) in the hot oil first, then add the onion, chilis, garlic, and ginger, cook a bit, then add the tomatoes and zucchini and cook until the oil begins to separate. Toss in the moong beans, the water/broth, bring to a boil and then simmer until the beans are soft. Add in the spinach and some lemon juice and cook until spinach is wilted, a minute or so. Garnish with chopped cilantro. Delish!
I made something similar after talking to my indian friend. I used serrano peppers instead of chile and I couln't find the curry leaves and didn't want the asafoetida. But very good and will make again my way. I served it over basmati rice and ghee.
This was very good and my first time ever eating lentils. I added some diced tomato, onion, and garlic. We ate it over rice. My husband brought out some Ritz crackers and it was really really good on crackers. Might be something I even make for a appitizer.
The spinach really makes these otherwise dull beans extraordinary. The spices are well balanced but who doesn't want more curry leaves? And when she says a "pinch" of hing/asafoetida, she means it. We found out the hard way.
We like to eat this over rice with the Simple Whole Roasted Chicken

I used a handful of frozen spinach and panch phoron (Bengali 5 spice mix) instead of the individual spices. Didnt use the ginger, curry leaves, nor red chile (it was plenty hot using the green chili). I used mustard oil instead of ghee, since we like the taste. I suggest to adjust water to the thickness desired (prior to adding the whole tempered spices). Also for us a half recipe is more than enough.
I added onions, garlic and tomatoes. Also added lemon juice at the end and some cilantro.
Made a scrumptious meal with flat bread.
Made exactly as described .. but it was bad
