Number of Servings: 8


    22 oz spinach
    2 cups moong dal
    1 cup fresh shredded coconut
    1 tbsp urad dal
    5/6 red chillies

    1 tbsp jeera


Boil the spinach & the moong dal with about 4-5 cups of water.
While the spinach is cooking, heat the oil in a small pan, put in the red chillies (broken) and the urad dal into the oil. Roast till dal goes from white to red/brown.
Add the roasted chillies, urad dal, jeera to the coconut and grind finely - you may have to add some water to be able to grind the mixture.
