Kale usually reminds me of drumstick leaves. This is a simple gravy dish using lentils that goes well with rice or roti. I have used the instant pot electric pressure cooker to make this. Off to the recipe.

- kale - 4 cups - packed (chopped)

Tadka: Heat oil and splutter mustard seeds. Add red chillies and urad dal. Saute until the dal turns golden brown.
Add the tadka to the kale-dal mixture.
