This is a good way to use up the greens that come with the organic beets you buy from your local farmers market or grocery. I can’t believe when I first started cooking I used to actually throw those away! Well not anymore 🙂 @sarchakra
PREP TIME: 15 mins
COOK TIME: 20 mins
YIELDS: Serves 4
- Beet greens 1 bunch, chopped fine
- Vegetable oil 1 tbsp
- Dry red chilies 2
- Salt to taste
- Turmeric 2 tsp
- Nigella seeds 2 tsp
- Sugar 2 tsp
- Flour 1 tbsp
- Heat oil. Add dry red chilies and nigella seeds. Let it turn aromatic. Add chopped beet greens. Keep the heat high till all the moisture is released.
- When the mixture becomes dry, add half a cup of water. Season with salt and turmeric. Cover and cook till done.
- Add sugar and flour. Turn the heat to high. Cook the mixture to a desired consistency.
It is really important to take time washing the greens thoroughly of all grime and dirt several times changing the water.
