Red Lentil Dal is my favorite Indian dish (you can find the recipe by clicking the "recipe" tab on the navigation bar) -- pair it with Saag and brown or basatami rice for a more complete meal.

A flavorful, sauteed spinach dish true to Indian cuisine.
2 cups fresh spinach
1 small onion, diced
3 whole garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp coriander
½ tsp turmeric
a dash of cayenne pepper
1 tsp garam masala
Saute onions in 1/4 cup water over high heat until translucent. Add garlic, ginger & spices and saute 2 minutes more, adding more water if necessary to prevent sticking or burning. Add spinach, 1 cup water and salt to taste. Reduce heat to low and simmer 10-15 minutes, or until the spinach is dark green and wilting. Remove from heat and allow to cool a little. Use a blender or processor to lightly puree greens. Stir in optional garam masala and serve.
