CHYE SIM WITH DHAL

Photobucket

Simple and nutritious vegetable, it is non spicy and best taken with rice or capati. Beside chye sim (Japanese mustard spinach) other leafy vegetables could be replaced using this method. Adding the chili powder makes it tastier otherwise it is rather bland. Without soaking, boil  the moong dhal until soft but still maintain its shape before adding them to the veggie.

INGREDIENTS

200g chye sim chopped
1 onion sliced
1 teaspoon garlic paste
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon mustard seeds
1/4 teaspoon urad dhal
2 tablespoons moong dhal soaked
1 tablespoon oil
salt to taste

METHOD

1. Heat the oil, splutter the mustard seeds and urad dhal. Add the onion, fry until light brown.

2. Add the garlic and chili powder, fry for a minute then add the chye sim, salt and the dhal.

3. Stir for few minutes, remove from heat.

4. Serve hot.
