Notes:
If u want u can also add 2 tbsp shredded coconut in the end along with salt but adding dal will give gud taste and a healthy choice too.
And u can also add both dal n coconut.
while stirring the spinach if u feel too moisture drain the excess water and add the water to ur sambar, rasam or add it to the chapathi dough while u knead.
