I guess this does not require much explanation:). But still I want to introduce about massopu to my friends who never came across this authentic karnataka recipe. Its the recipe with lots of  greens and little dal cooked together and ground to paste. As though it goes well with rice its best suited with Ragi Mudde.

Original recipe suggest 5 different greens are used. but it tastes goodeven with 2-3 different greens.So you can try with whatever is available with you.
So lets start:

You Need To Have:

3 cups of different greens(Spinach, Dill,methi,etc..)
1/2 cup toor dal
1 tomato
1 onion
3-4 garlic
4-5 green chilies
1 tsp cumin seeds/jeerige
1 tsp coriander seeds/kothambari

For Tampering
1 tsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds/sasive
2-3 curry leaves


Chop and wash the greens and keep them aside.

Put these greens, dal, chopped onion and tomato, garlic,green chillies, cumin and coriander in a cooker container.
Pressure cook them with required amount of water for 2-3 whistles.

Once they cool down ground them to puree,keep it aside.
In Sambar pot take oil and add mustard seeds.once they start spluttering add curry leaves and grounded paste. add required amont of water and salt. bring it to boil. simmer for 5-6 mins.

Healthy Masoppu is ready to serve with Ragi mudde.
