ಮಸೊಪ್ಪು ~ Masoppu

 Masoppu saaru

Masoppu means Mashed/Maseda soppu, this sambhar is made of combination many greens like Amaranth/Danttu, Menthya, hulli soppu, Basale soppu/Malabar Spinach, Spinach,Dill/Sabasige soppu.
This is an incredible match with Ragi mudde. Goes well with rice too, if its made thick like curry can be had with chapathi.

Ingredients :

Toor Dal : 1/2 - 1 Cup
Greens : Mix of all the greens about 250 gms 
            ( Palak, Fenugreek, Dill, Danttu/Amaranth,Hulli)
Tomato : 1 - 2
Onion : 1
Garlic : 5 -6 cloves
Jeera : 1 tsp
Curry, Coriander leaves.
Green chilles : 4 - 5
Sambhar powder : 1/2 - 1 tsp


Wash & chop the  green vegges.
Wash the toor dal, mix the chopped greens, add chopped onion, cloves of garlic, jeera. 
Pressure cook all the ingredients for 3 whistles, dont add tomato to the mixture, keep the tomatoes in the separate cooker plate, if the tomatoes are added while cooking dal it wont be cooked well.

Let it cool to the room temperature.

Mash the boiled mixture of greens & dal to a fine paste with help of a butter churner/ spoon, mash tomatoes & add to the mixture.
Now keep a vessel add oil , add mustard seeds when it splutters add, chopped onion (optional) curry leaves, add the mashed mixture to the vessel. add sambhar powder, add salt to the taste, if you want you can add tamarind juice also.
