Swiss Chard Dal Curry

This year we had a lot of Swiss chard in our garden, so I tried to make different kinds of dishes from that. This is another tasty recipe with Swiss chard. This one is a kind of curry so you can pour on top of the rice and enjoy. Maybe you don’t need any other side dish with this. My other recipes with Swiss chard are Swiss chard poriyal and Swiss chard and egg stir-fry.
