Points to Notice:
is said that spinach and tomatoes when cooked together is not good for
because they form kidney stones. It is also said that once in a while
combination will not create any problem but if consumed regularly is not
for health. I do not know how far this is true. So I cook them
mix them. After seasoning the dal I cook it for just 5 minutes. And I
care to prepare this dal once in a while only. Hope this information
all. However if you want to avoid this combination, prepare spinach dal
tamarind juice instead of tomatoes. You can also try this with raw
Amchur powders i.e., dry mango powder.
