I love cooking greens...many reasons...healthy,quick and delicious too..Even though I have tried many, collard leaves never got a chance to be experimented by me until today.I had eaten this once or twice when my mom cooked it..but never knew what to do when I got a fresh bunch of it...Rang up mom and got a quick recipe for it...and here it is..:)
Collard greens-1/2 bunch(8 to 10 leaves)
Salt to taste
Turmeric powder-a pinch.
Grated Coconut-1/4 cup
Green chili-1 no(finely chopped)
Method Of Preparation:
1. Cut the collard leaves to small pieces roughly.If stem is there cut to very small pieces.
2. Add this to a wok and cook closed with salt and turmeric powder.
3. Meanwhile crush the garlic and mix it along with green chilli to the grated coconut in a plate.Crush all the ingredients together with your hands.
4. Once the greens look cooked and there is no water in it add the coconut mixture and mix well.Cook for a minute mixing well and turn off the heat.
