Yield: 4 adults
Theme: South Indian
1 bundle spinach/ green chawli leaves
Handful Madras onions/shallots. ( If not available use 1 regular normal sized onion.
2-3 green chillies
Salt to taste
Heat about 2 cups water in a pan. Add the chillies and onions and let it come to a rolling boil. Add the cleaned washed and chopped leafy vegetable and blanch it for 3-4 mimnutes. Drain the water and immerse the leafy vegetables in a cold bath. This helps in retaining the natural green colour. Drain and squeeze out water from the leafy vegetable.
Pulse this along with salt to taste and coconut oil about 2 tbspns. Take care to not grind it to a very fine paste. It should be a little coarse.
Serve this with hot steamed rice, papad and pickle.
