Greens are very cheap and you can make much varieties out of it like kootu, poriyal, thuvattal, kadaiyal, keerai vadai and so many. The cooking time is very less. Only time consuming process is to sort out the keerai and cleaning it. If somebody does it for me, I will prepare keerai even everyday ;)
Ingredients for keerai kootu
Arai Keerai - 2 cups (washed, cleaned and chopped finely)
Pearl Onion - 10 minced
Green Chillies - 3 split
Tomato - 1 minced
Green Gram Dhal (Paasiparuppu) - 1/2 cup
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Split Urad Dhal - 1/2 tsp
cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Red Chillies - 3
Aesfoetida- 1 pinch
For this recipe the dhal should be less and the keerai should be more. Its good on both the health and taste front.
In kadai, cook the dhal (don't pressure cook it). Once it is half cooked add all the ingredients to it and close it with a lid. Let it cook for some time.
That's all season the kootu with the seasoning items.
Serve hot with rice and potato fry.
This is my kid's favourite during lunch time and hence I am sending this for Monthly Mingle -Kids Lunches hosted by Srivalli and originated by Meeta. I truly had a lovely lunch.
Again am sending this to FIC Red+Green hosted by Neha(don't know whether it fits her tricky guidelines ;)) originated by Sunshinemom
Also when I am alone at home, I will prepare this for me and not much of cooking involved, hence sending this to Single Serving Recipes hosted by Spicyrasam
