PINEAPPLE METHI DHAL CURRY

Pineapple Methi Dhal Curry is a sweet tangy healthy comfort food on days you crave for a light yet healthy lunch. The sweetness of the pineapple, the pinch of bitterness from the methi, which is packed with health, and the creaminess of the dhal will have the little ones asking for more!

This weekend has been dull & cloudy, wanted to color a Saturday afternoon bright & cheerful with a splash of happy yellow, so tried this new combo. Methi leaves which are great cure to stomach ulcers, when added fresh in almost every meal, the pineapple apart from its cheerful color & yummy taste also has a high content of manganese which promotes bone growth.It is also supposedly good in curing sinusitis, sore throat etc.I tried this combo with our regular comfort dhal & yes indeed it was a new flavor with a twist
