We all love to eat green vegetables at home.There in Hyderabad my mom used to cook every alternate day as there was a guy who used to sell leafy vegetables on his cycle.Every alternate day he used to give my mom.My daughter think this is spinach and she likes to eat it because Popeye eats spinach.This recipe is my mom's recipe.I hardly get this in the super markets here,what i get is the red ones which i don't like.But when ever i see thotakura i pick it up.
Thotakura fry 2 bunches
Green chillies 2
Red chillies 2
Udad dal 2tsp
Oil 2 tbsp
Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
Salt as per taste
- Wash amarnath leaves twice so that all the sand gets washed away and chop it.
- Chop onions keep aside.
- Heat oil add red chillies,green chillies,rai and udat.When udat starts turning brown colour add the chopped leaves and onions.
- Add salt and turmeric powder.
- Cover and cook it all the water evaporates and the leaves are well cooked.No need of adding water as the leafy vegetables when cooked leaves water.But if you still think water is not sufficient,you can add little water.
Red chilly powder can be used in place of whole red chillies,i don't use chilly powder because i want the fry colour to be green.Please note that onions are not fried in this curry,they get cooked with the leaves.
