Beet Greens KoLumbo

We love the taste and flavor of the beet greens. But they are hard to get as most of the times they are rotten and stale. I decided to make this daal yesterday. I thought the daal would turn pink/red, but there were just tiny specks of the red color.

Beet Greens KoLumbo
Beet Greens with daal
1/3 cup green peas daal/split green peas
1/3 cup yellow moong daal

1. Pressure cook daal, turmeric powder, asafoetida and shredded greens adding double amount of water.
2. Mash the cooked daal. Add 2 cups water and churn it lightly. Pour it in a saucepan.
3. Bring to boil. Add koLumbo masala, tamarind paste, salt. Simmer for 10 minutes.
4. Heat oil in a small saucepan. Add minced onion. As it turns brown, pour the tempered onion oil over the daal. Switch off the gas. and cover it with a lid.
5. Serve with plain rice and papad & achar.

Note -
1. Instead of green peas daal & yellow moong daal, toor daal can be used.
