Palak palle or palak dal recipe explained with step by step pictures. This palak dal resembles Andhra style palak kura pappu.Palak palle is a popular dal recipe from north karnataka and is served as an accompaniment with jowar roti (jolada rotti) or rice roti or chapathi or rice. Palak palle is prepared using palak leaves (spinach leaves), toor dal, onion, garlic and few other spices. Palak palle is also familiar by name palak byali and bele palle.
In north karnataka "palle" is the general word used for curries prepared using vegetables or lentils. And so is the name "palak palle" for this dal recipe. Two types of palak palle recipes are in practice. One is adding pre-cooked dal and the other one is cooking the dal along with other ingredients. In this recipe I have followed the first method. I have posted menthe palle or methi dal earlier using second method, that is cooking dal with the leaves.
You can replace palak leaves with dil leaves or methi leaves. It tastes equally good. Do check my methi parota recipe and menthe soppina rice bath other tasty recipes from methi leaves. Also I have posted tasty menthe huli or rasam and menthe idli recipe, which are prepared using fenugreek seeds. This is a very tasty dal recipe. And I would say it is a must try recipe. I am sure it will not disappoint you. You can also find more North Karnataka recipes, more gravy recipes and more curry recipes on this website.
