Spinach and Moon Dal Badi /Vadi - What a yummy stir fry


efore marriage I din't like the taste of both the main ingredients here. I used to skip my meals when spinach or badi was in the menu. My mom and sis can't believe that I'm cooking with these now a days and I should say that this is my new favourite.
Spinach chopped - 2 cups
Ginger grated - 1 tsp
Garlic - 2-3 cloves
Moon Dal Badiya - 3/4 cup
Salt - 3/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Hing - 1/8 tsp
Tomato - 2 medium size
Oil - 1 tbsp

Break the Moon dal Badiya placing them in between kitchen towel. Chop and wash the spinach. Heat oil in a pan.  Add cumin seeds. When seeds splutter, add hing. Add ginger and chopped garlic. Add badiya and roast them until golden brown. Add all the ingredients except tomatoes and garam masala. Mix it well. Leave it on medium heat for 8 min or until all the water from spinach evaporates. Stir occasionally. Cut 1 tomato into small cubes and add into the stir fry. Cover for 2 min. Add garam masala in the end and garnish with another tomato.
