If you eat its leaves everyday with your food then it gives your body the vitamins it lacks to quite an extent.Chaulai is also known Amaranth, Red Spinach, Laal sag, Rajgira saag, Chuamarsa, Ganhar, Kalgaghasa or Thotakura. It can be prepared in various ways like dal can be added to Chaulai leaves and made as Saag, Chaulai can also be mixed with potatoes and made as Chaulai Aloo Bhujia, it can also be mixed with brinjal and prepared into Chaulai Brinjal Bhajji.It can be mixed with the vegetable of your choice to prepare a dish. Chaulai leaves mixed with Moong dal makes a very tasty combination. In some houses people use Tur dal in place of Moong dal.So let’s prepare Chaulai Saag with Moong Dal - Amaranth Leaves Lentil Curry.Ingredients for Chaulai Saag with Moong DalChaulai/Amaranth Leaves - 250 gramsMoong dal - 100 grams (1 small bowl)Salt - add to taste (1 tsp)Tomatoes - 2Green chilly - 1-2Ginger - 1 inch long pieceGhee - 1 tbspHeeng(asafoetida) - 1 to 2 pinchJeera(cumin seeds) - 1/2 tspTurmeric powder - 1/4 tspRed chilly powder - less than 1/4 tspGreen coriander - 1 tbspHow to make Chaulai Saag with Moong DalRemove the fat stems from the Chaulai leaves; clean any extra grass and other weeds. Wash the leaves 2-3 times with clean water. Place them in a strainer to drain any water that is remaining. Finely chop the leaves. Wash Moong dal with clean water and soak it for 15-20 minutes. Put dal and Chaulai in a cooker. Pour 3 cups of water then add salt. Close the lid and cook dal and Chaulai till 1 whistle goes off.If you don't prefer much of spices then the dal can be prepared by putting Tadka of Heeng and Jeera. Else you can follow the method given here.Make a fine paste of tomatoes, green chilly and ginger. Pour Ghee in a pan (kadhai) and heat. Put Heeng and Jeera in hot Ghee, after Jeera is fried add turmeric powder and tomato, green chilly paste. Fry these spices till the spices seem granular or the Ghee floats over them. Then add red chilly powder. Open the cooker and check if the dal is thin or thick in texture then add water till dal turns to your desired density. Now add the fried spices to the dal taste the dal and add salt respectively, also put in green coriander.Chaulai dal is ready; take it out in a bowl. Serve hot Chaulai dal with chapatti, naan or rice and eat.Instead of putting tomato, ginger paste in the dal you can put Tadka of Heeng and Jeera which also makes the dal very delicious.Chaulai besan curryYou can use gram flour (besan) in place of Moong dal while preparing Chaulai.Pour 1 tbsp oil in a pan and heat, put Heeng and Jeera in hot oil. Once Jeera is fried add turmeric powder, ginger, green chilly-tomato paste and fry all of the spices. Now put the chopped Chaulai leaves cover the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes.

    I am intrigued by this recipe as I didn't quite know Amarnath leaves were a variety of Chaulai! My grand mother used to cook Chaulai saag that I loved but I had a distant memory of its leaves being green in colour and smaller in size. I also liked the chopping board that you used in the video to chop Amarnath leaves. Is there a special name for this kind of chopping board and would you happen to know if it is available on any online site to purchase?
    अर्चना, चौलाई ग्रीन और रैड दोंनो कलर में मिलती है, पत्ते भी छोटे और बड़े होते हैं, स्वाद दोनों चौलाई का बहुत अच्छा होता है और न्यूट्रीसियस भी हैं. चौपिंग बोर्ड बर्तन की दुकान पर आसानी से मिल जाता है.

    Thank you for replying. This dish with Amarnath leaves looks divine. I found the chopping board on ebay India and I have placed my order with them. It's actually called 'Cut & Wash' board and costs from Rs. 135 to Rs 300 on ebay. When are you adding 'About Us' section? I am very keen to know your background and how and when did you start writing recipes?
    अर्चना, मैं सोचती हूँ, मेरे बारे में जानने से ज्यादा रैसिपी के बारे में जानना ज्यादा अच्छा है, रिप्लाई करने से मैं आप सब लोंगो से जुड़ जाती हूँ और आप कह रही है तो मैं अपने बारे में लिखने की कोशिश करूंगी, धन्यवाद.
