Spinach and Lentil Palak Dal: Secret Recipe Club
It seems like forever since the last SecretRecipeClub! I switched from the B group to the D group, so I got an extra 2 weeks off. I am so excited this month to have been assigned to Shirley's blog Enriching your Kid! where she chronicles her mom's recipes as well as her own. Her foods are wonderfully different than most anything I have every made. It was so much fun to read her recipes and to decide what to make. I almost made a curry, but then realized I had no idea where to get some of the crucial ingredients. Then I thought of doing a paneer...but the last of my cottage cheese was eaten by an unnamed individual. Finally, I settled on this lentil and spinach dish. It was so full of healthful ingredients and had lots of flavor. I served it with a little sour cream on top, though, because at the last minute, I wimped out because of the spicy heat.
