Keerai Mor Kootu

For the second week of Blogging Marathon#28,I decided to go with the theme of Kootu.Here at my home, The first kootu that i was introduced to was the Mor Kootu. It tastes similar to the Mor kuzhumbu but with a lot of vegetables. Here I have used Amaranth leaves

Salt                      to taste

Asafoetida              1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder    a pinch
Grated fresh coconut 1/4 cup
Green chillies              2
Cumin seeds             1 tsp
,ix the ground paste with the curd and keep it aside
Pick the green leaves. Wash well at least 3 times and chop finely
Grind the coconut, chilies and cumin seeds into a smooth paste
Cook the green in a cooker or microwave it
Heat a pan with oil. Now add mustard seeds and when it spultters add cumin seeds and asafoetida. Now put the cooked green in it and saute for a minute
