Beet Greens Curry

Cooking a new Vegetable is really a risk when we don't know how it would taste.Thanks to the technology and  Internet there are so many links which help us know our veggies. I googled about the Beet Greens and then found out that the greens part of any vegetable has more nutrients than the vegetable itself. Having known this fact I try to buy vegetables along with the greens. And few experiments finally gave me a good result.. :) Just like this Greens of Beetroot... Here is the recipe.

Ingredients :

Beetroot greens along with the stalk.

Onion – 1
Tomato – 1
Green chillies – 2
Grated Coconut – 2tsp
Chickpeas- ¼ cup
Onion – 1tsp
Mustard seeds – 1tsp
Cumin seeds – 1tsp

Method : 

  • Separate the green leaves from the stalk and don’t discard the stalks. Chop the leaves and the stalk and pressure cook it for 3 whistles.
  • Soak the Chickpeas in water overnight and pressure cook it. Keep them ready.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a pan, crackle mustard seeds and then add cumin seeds. Add green chillies and fry them for a minute.
  • Now add chopped Onions. Once the onions get transparent, add tomatoes. Fry them till the onion tomato mixture gets mushy.
  • Now add the cooked greens, cooked chickpeas along with grated coconut and salt.
  • Fry them until the mixture gets mixed well.
