Dal Palak in Kerala Style

Here in Johannesburg Veg options are always less for us. Once in Fruit & Veg store I was wondering what to buy, when my husband told me about this combination which north indians used to make. I thought to make it in Kerala style and it turned out to be a very good side dish. We prepare it once every week.
