Cooking Instructions

  1. Defrost 24 hours in refrigerator.
  2. Bring 1.5 cups water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add rice to water and return to boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until water is absorbed and rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Heat one teaspoon oil of choice in a soup pot over medium/high heat. Add onion/spinach mixture and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in spice mixture (small cup) and cook 30 seconds.
  5. Add lentils and 3 cups water to the pot. Bring to a boil and cover. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until lentils are tender, about 40 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent sticking. Add water if a thinner dish is desired. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve dal over hot rice.
