Dill Sabzi / Sepu Sabzi

I make this curry mostly during the weekends, when we get fresh dill from the farmer's market. This is a Maharashtrian sabzi and dill is considered good for all digestive problems.

1 bunch of dill
1/4 cup chana dal or split chick peas
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
4 pinches asafoetida
2 green chilies
salt for taste


Waash and soak chana dal for 20-30 minutes. Cut the dill into one inch thin pieces. In a pan, add 1 tablespoon oil. Add cumin seeds,asafoetida and finely chopped green chili. Fry for a minute. Add chana dal and 1/2 cup water. Add coriander powder. Cook the chana dal till soft. Add chopped dill and cook covered till the dill is soft. Season with salt and Serve hot with roti or rice.

Preparation time: 40 minutes
