      1. Soak the yellow mung dal for 1-2hrs. Wash a few times and then drain.
      2. In a pan, add the oil. Heat on a medium/high heat, add the whole Kashmiri chili, cinnamon stick, and cloves. Then add the mustard seeds. When they start to crackle, add the cumin, followed by the asafoetida, and the curry leaves. Turn the heat down little.

      4. Thereafter, cook on medium heat with the lid on for 15-20 minutes.
      5. Meanwhile, wash the spinach and chop it into fine pieces.
      6. Check the dal (lentils) and when soft between the fingers, add the spinach. Stir and check the seasoning. Add more salt if required.
      7. Thereafter, cook for 5 mins on low heat until the spinach is cooked. Ensure that you do not overcook the spinach.
      8. Eventually, add the fresh coriander and serve the dish either with rice or rotis (Indian bread).
