Place Naturli Vegan Block in a pot on a low heat and start slowly melting it.
When the butter is fully melted, place in the pot freshly chopped onions and grated ginger. Fry it until they become soft.
Add chopped tomato and boil until softened. You can add water, if it is necessary.
Add turmeric, chili and coriander powder.
Add lentils and water to cover them.
Boil over low heat until the consistency is thick and creamy.
Yellow lentils can take up to 45mins to be in this density.
When the lentils are almost done, add spinach and let it simmer for 12 mins.
Spinach dal is best served with rice or flatbread.
If you wish to make the Spinach dal as close as possible to original Indian food, you can add tadka oil, which is a combination of spices and herbs fried in ghee, but regular oil can also be used. Tadka gets stirred into the dal after it is cooked and flavours it.
