Keerai Moru Kootu - Spinach Yogurt Gravy

Posted by Picasa

I love to use green leafy vegetables in our daily cooking..But at the same time wanted to make something different from the regular.Then a thought struck me about this traditional recipe moru kootu.Spinach gets a unique flavor and creamy texture when mixed with the thick sour tastes amazing!!!! You get the feel of moru kozhambu.I feel this is one more way to add such healthy nutrition packed vegetable into our diet.It is really simple to make too...Try it,will love it:-)...

1) Chopped spinach - 4cups
2) Beaten sour yogurt/curd - 2 cups
3) To grind to paste:
Coconut grated - 2 1/2tblsp
Green chillies - 2
Red chilly - 1
Cumin seeds - 1 1/2tsp
Fenugreek seeds - 1/4 tsp
4) Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
5) For tempering:
Mustard seeds - 1tsp
Hing - little
Red chilly - 1
Oil - 1tblsp
6) Salt to taste

In a pot cook spinach till soft and tender with just enough water.Add turmeric powder and hing.

Meantime,grind the above mentioned grinding ingredients into a smooth paste and keep side.

Once spinach is cooked,add the ground paste to it and cook till raw smell goes away.Add salt.Now,switch off the stove and add the sour curd to the spinach.Mix it really well.In a pan,saute the tempering ingredients and add it to the gravy.That's it,is that not simple??...

Hot tangy keerai moru kootu is ready!!!! Serve with hot steaming rice and papad...
