Hurray!.. One more day to go!. I am eagerly looking forward for this long weekend to relax. Let's see how it goes. Last Sunday's farmers market visit bought kale and swiss chard. For today's dinner decided to make sautéed greens in Andhra style the way I cook Amaranth Leaves.
Very simple yet delicious and healthy.
Kale is rich in Vitamin A, C and K. Swiss Chard is very rich in Vitamin A, C, K, Potassium and Iron. So try to cook these greens more often and be healthy.
1bunch of Swiss chard
1bunch of Kale
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
1/4inch ginger finely chopped
1 medium sized onion chopped
1tsp red chili powder( Adjust as per your spice) (Optional)
Salt to taste
1tbsp of oil
1tsp of mustard seeds
1tsp of Cumin seeds
1tsp of Urad Dal /Split Black Gram
3 red chilies
Wash kale and swiss chard and pull of leaves of the stems. Coarsely chop leaves and finely chop stems. Add oil in a pan, once oil is hot add mustard seeds,cumin seeds, urad dal and red chilies. Once mustard seeds starts splattering add chopped garlic, ginger and onions. Once onions lose the raw flavor add chopped greens, red chili powder/pepper powder, salt. Cook for 5-6 mts till greens are cooked completely. Adjust spices as needed.
Healthy greens are ready to be served.
