Keerai Masiyal / Keerai Kadaiyal

I'm not so fond of greens but like to have once in a while. Moreover , here in US, we don't get variety of greens as we get in India. I've already posted one recipe for keerai kadaiyal with minimum ingredients . Long time back while we ( me n Savi )were chatting ( mostly about food  ) ,I'm told abt her mom's recipe using tomato and tamarind juice. I've never used these ingredients in kadaiyal and so immediately tried her recipe, this time using mustard  greens. Really tasted awesome , never thought mustard greens would be this much yummy when done right with the right ingredients.... I really relished a lot..

Ingredients :

Spinach / any greens -- a bunch
Green chillies -- 2 nos. (acc to taste)
Tamarind juice (diluted) -- 1/4 cup
Tomato -- 1/2 no. (chopped)
Garlic cloves -- 2 cloves

Seasoning :

Oil -- 1 tsp
Dry red chillies -- 1 no, broken
Vadagam (kuzhambu vadagam ) -- a handful
Else use Mustard seeds -- 1/2 tsp , Cumin seeds -- 1/2 tsp



Method :
  • Chop the spinach and add all the other ingredients. Mix well. Cover the pot and cook until it's done. ( might take 5 to 6 minutes)
  • Blend the boiled greens using a hand blender to a semi -coarse paste using hand blender / mixie.
  • Heat a pan seperately with the oil and do the seasoning with vadagam / ( if using )Mustard seeds n cumin seeds and with broken dry red chillies. Transfer to the mashed greens and mix well. U may also grind the greens after the seasoning part, I like grinding the seasoned vadagam in keerai kadaiyal..very flavourful..
  • Njoy with hot steaming rice with a tsp of ghee drizzled on top..
