We prepared dal with these leaves as we prepare spinach dal (Indian style).
The preparation is very simple. The steps involves as follows:
1) Boil dal and leaves separately in pressure cooker (Note: dal does not cook well in the presence of leaves)
2) Churn the dal so that it becomes smooth paste
3) Prepare tadka and mix with the boiled dal and leaves
No need to add tamarind as the leaves give sourness to the dal. However, it gave slight bitterness because we didn't remove the middle stem. We liked this recipe though :)
Hi Mahathi, Thanks for your recipe. Even I make dal sometimes.
Do share more of your tips and recipes.

wat is collard green in malayalam?
Hi Sunitha, Am not sure if this vegetable is there in Kerala. Hence I do not know its Malayalam name. This is found in most American grocery stores.

Instead of coconut I add fried tofu crumbs. This tastes good.
Stir fry the tofu cubes let it cool for few minutes and break it into tiny pieces and add at the end. Fry for few minutes.
Oh wow santhi... thats a great tip.. i'll definetely try adding tofu crumbs next time. Thanks again.
