Greens contain a lot of iron, hence I prefer to make them once a week. One can make a meal of these simple stir fries which are seasoned either with garlic or a pinch of asafoetida. This time round, I found a big fresh bunch of Malabar Spinach. I had a few jackfruit seeds too. Combined them to make a stir fry with lots of garlic. The aroma in the kitchen is irresistible!!
- A big bunch of Malabar spinach
- 1 potato
- 15 jackfruit seeds
- 15 cloves of garlic
- 3 dry red chillies
- 2 tbsps Coconut oil
Wash the Malabar spinach well and chop along with the tender stems. Discard the hard ones if any. Deskin the potato, wash and chop into tiny cubes. Peel the jackfruit seeds. Wash and crush them with a mallet. Pressure cook to five whistles. Do not discard the water in which the seeds have been cooked. Crush the garlic roughly. Heat oil. Add the garlic and roast to a rich golden brown. Drop in the broken red chilly bits. Toss. Add the chopped Malabar Spinach, potatoes and the cooked jackfruit seeds along with the water. Add salt as required. Cook till done.
