In konkani 'SUKKE' means dry sidedish cooked with grated coconut and indian spice. This recipe is slightly different from dal palak. Palak cooked with fried garlic and moong dal is unique. It is also the good source of iron rich and healthy. I crave this atleast once a week and is a comforting dish.


1 cup Chopped palak.

1/2 cup Chopped coriander leaves.

1/2 cup Moong dal.

1/2 tsp Mustard seeds.

1/2 tsp chilli powder.

1/2 tsp Urad dal.

1/4 tsp turmeric powder.

2 pods Garlic(optional).

1 tbsp Grated coconut.

1 tsp oil.

Salt to taste.


Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and urad dal. Fry till the urad dal colour turns slight brown

Add garlic and moong dal with enough water. Cook over a low heat till dal is cooked.

Then add palak and coriander leaves with salt and cover for few minutes.

Lastly when all the greens are semi cooked add grated coconut, turmeric powder and chilli powder. Stir over medium heat till greens starts drying up a bit.
