1-2 green chillies
1-2 red chillies
Tamarind extract - 1 tablespoon
Turmeric – 1tsp
Salt to taste
Mustard seeds – 1tsp
Fenugreek seeds – 1 tsp
Oil 1 tbsps (Can use coconut oil for that authentic Kerala taste)
Destalk and wash the leaves. Cut the leaves into very small pieces.
Boil the leaves in tamarind water, turmeric and salt, till the leaves are cooked well.
Add the green chillies while boiling, when they are cooked, remove the boiled green chillies and grind them and mix with the boiled leaves
Season the leaves with mustard seeds, red chilies broken into 2 and fenugreek seeds.
