POTATO WITH GREENS


This dish can be prepared with ponnanganni keerai or amaranthus (mola keerai).Ponnanganni

Keerai is mostly used in India,Srilanka and Asian countries.Mukunuwenna mallum(poriyal)

is a favourite in Srilankan cuisine.I’m a fan of this mallum and thought to combine with

Potato .It is a very healthy green,and also used in the preparation of hair oil.This dish can be a 

side dish for rice and curry .Well,for the recipe now.

1 cup greens

2-3 green chillies chopped

1 tblsp.lime juice

1-2 tblsp coconut oil /gingelly oil

Salt to taste

For tempering

1/2 tsp.mustard seeds

METHOD

Next add the green chillies,spices and potato and cook for another minute .Once it is well 

blended with the onions,add the greens with the scraped coconut and sauté well till you get the 

aroma of the greens.Remove from fire and add lime juice .Serve with rice and curry.
