Baby bok choy and tomato dal

Last week when we went to an Asian grocery store,I picked up baby bok choy.After coming home they went into the fridge and all forgotten about.I usually stir fry bok choy with onion and green chillies and serve as a side dish or add it into my soups. Today I made it for dinner combined with toor dal and tomato.

1 cup toor dal (washed)
1&1/2 cups bok choy(chopped)
1 small onion (chopped)
2-3 green chillies(slit length wise)
1 medium tomato (chopped)
1tsp sliced ginger(optional)
1&1/2 tsp sambar pwd
A small marble sized tamarind
A pinch of turmeric
Salt to taste

1 tsp aavalu/mustard seeds
1 tsp jeera/cumin seeds
3-4 dried red chillies(torn )
5-6 curry leaves
2 pods of garlic or a pinch of hing

Heat 1 tsp oil and saute the onions, green chillies, ginger for a minute.Add the washed and chopped bok choy and saute for 2-3 mins and add tomato, toor dal, tamarind, turmeric and sambar pwd along with water and pressure cook till done.Add salt and mix well.
Heat an other pan add oil/ghee and add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds.When they splutter, add the dried red chillies, garlic or hing, curry leaves and saute for another 2 mins.Switch off and add to the cooked dal and mix well.Serve with rice or phulkas.Enjoy!!!
