If you are doing just the dill leaves stir fry from the scratch use : Dill leaves / sabsige soppu – 2 big bunch and Tuvar dal – 1/ 4 cup
If you are doing just the stir fry from scratch , add chopped dill leaves to the tempering .Saute for 2-3 mins , add little water ,close and cook . Once the greens are 75 % cooked , add cooked dal ,salt and mix well . Finally add grated coconut .
When doing from scratch , addition of tuvar dal is optional but recommended. It gives a nice volume and taste .
Adding garlic is optional .If you are a lactating or expecting mom , dill leaves and garlic combo is very much recommended.
If making for new lactating mom , avoid using dal as it may cause gas in new born babies .
Be careful while adding salt . it doesn’t take much .
