Spinach Dal

When ever me and my husband go out for dinner or lunch we love to go few places again and again that’s because when you like something you want to eat it again and again.
And spinach dal is one of them .even ever we eat in Pakistani or Indian restaurant we ask them do they have sage dal .with warm naan and salad this is one special treat .
After my  husband got high cholesterol we try to eat clean home made food and I make this recipe in many different way ,but this is the one we both think the is the best .
Its creamy ,its spicy  and its healthy .so enjoy our favorite restaurant style spinach dal curry.
