Keerai Mor Kootu - Greens in spiced butter milk gravy

Its one of granny's recipe. Very healthy, soothing and comforting. This could be done with any green leafy vegetables. I made it with spinach.

Check out the nutrition benefits for spinach.



Ingredients:-
Chopped Spinach - 1 cup
Sour Thick buttermilk - 1/2 cup
Salt

To grind:-
Red Chilli - 4-5
Cumin - 1 sp
Coconut - 1 Tbsp

To temper:-
Urad Dal - 1 sp

Beat curd to thick buttermilk.
Make paste from grinding Red chillis, cumin and coconut adding little water.
Wash well and chop the spinach. Pressure cook till soft.
Add ground paste to boiled spinach, cook for about 5-8 mins.
Finally add buttermilk,salt. boil for 2 mins (till a boil) not more.
Temper urad dal in very little oil and add.
Serve hot with rice.

**If its not thickened enough, add 1 tbsp of rice flour mixed with cold water and cook for few mins.
** Can add 1 sp of tamarind if butter milk is not sour.
