Soak moong dal and tur dal (pigeon pea) in water for a couple of hours. After they have been soaked well, pressure cook them with spinach leaves in 4 cups of water. Make a paste and leave aside.
Heat oil in a pan. Once done, add cumin seeds till they splutter. Then add finely chopped ginger and garlic. Saute them till the raw aroma goes away. When they are slightly browned, add garam masala, turmeric powder, chopped chillies and a pinch of asafoetida.
Fry this mixture on low flame and then add the dal and spinach paste. You can add some water to adjust the consistency.
Add thick cream to the simmering dal, season with salt and lemon juice.
