As a child I hated greens…. Was forced, bribed and what not by the granny and the mom to no avail!
Even till recently I used to crinkle my nose and make a face at the sight of greens. The other day the husband’s aunt made this munagaku talimpu / stir fried drumstick leaves… And I almost ate half the bowl she made…
So there started my love affair with greens… I have started tasting and experimenting with all kind of greens…
So here goes my version of the Munagaku Talimpu.
- 3 cups drumstick leaves ( pluck the leaves from stems and wash thoroughly )
- 1 large onion thinly sliced
- 6 TBSP Lahsun chutney
- Salt to taste
- ¼ tsp mustard seeds
- 1/8 tsp jeera seeds.
- 2 tsp oil
Heat oil in a pan, add the mustard and jeera seeds and let them splutter. Now add in the onions and fry till translucent. Add in the drumstick leaves and cook for 5 minutes, add salt and lahsun chutney, stir and take off heat. Serve with rice / roti.
