Bathua Urad Dal/ Sagpaita/ सग्पैता / उरद और बथुए की दाल

Sagpaita is a dish from Uttar Pradesh which is made with pulses and bathua or spinach. People often make it with green moong dal or chana dal. But at our home it is made with bathua ka saag and black urad dal and is given tadka by garlic, heeng and dry whole red chili.
Usually Sagpaita is serve with boiled rice but in our family we served it with besan or bajara chapati and roasted tomato chutney.
Bathua saag is always made with black urad dal or moong dal because inherent property of dhuli urad is cooling in nature.
It is mostly made during winters as bathua is only available in this season. You can also make it by adding spinach or both saag. But with urad dal, bathua combination is mostly preferred.
These days, desi tomatoes are available which can be roasted and can be made into salad by adding onions and green chillies or serve with simple onion and fresh green chili pickle.
