Andhra Thali

Day 8 BM #56 - 

One of my friends had an abundant crop of Thotakoora/Amaranth leaves in her garden and she graciously packed some for me. I thanked her profusely realizing that it was one of the best looking thotakoora ever.

Looking at the garden fresh thotakoora, I went with an all green menu (Thotakoora Fry, Thotakoora Majjiga Pulusu, Kheera Pachadi, Mango Pickle and Plain Dal) which we relished a lot.
Don't we all know that garden fresh veggies taste the best? Organic, eco-friendly and the best tasting meal..

Fresh Thotakoora, Amaranth leaves

Ingredients - 

Thotakoora/Amaranth leaves chopped 4 cups
Onions, chopped 1 cup
Salt, Red Chili Powder, Coconut Powder as needed
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Chana Dal 2 tsp, Moong Dal 3 Tbsp, Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp, Curry leaves few)

Thotakoora Fry

Method Of Preparation -

Wash the leaves and chop them. Saute them until they wilt.

In a heated pan, add the seasoning ingredient and after the dals are golden brown, add onions and saute.

After the onions are translucent, add the Amaranth leaves, salt, red chili powder and coconut powder.

Mix well and fry for a few more minutes.

Remove from heat and serve.
