Siru keerai Chutney | Tropical Amaranthus Chutney

>>  Monday, August 29, 2011

For the final day of the BM Edition 8, I thought I should post this chutney that Athamma makes with the Amaranthus or Siru Keerai as we call it. Mostly we make it as pappu or stir fry. For a change she wanted to make it as a chutney. It went well with steaming Rice.

The last two weeks was wonderful with me trying out new condiments. And for the mela I am sure I am going to get loads of them which will be great add on to our regular meal. 

I hope you enjoyed these two weeks of marathon. Let's check this simple recipe.

Ingredients Needed:

Siru Keerai / Amaranthus - 1 bunch
Onions - 1 medium
Tomatoes - 1 medium
Green chilies - 2 -3 medium
Garlic - 3 cloves
Turmeric a pinch
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 tsp

How to make Siru Keerai Chutney

Wash and chop the leaves fine.

Heat a pan with oil, saute the onions till brown. the add the washed green leaves, add green chilies, chopped tomatoes salt and turmeric powder. Cover with lid and cook till the leaves are cooked.

Check in between to make sure all the moisture is evaporated.

Remove and allow to cool.

Then grind this in the mixer with garlic.
Serve with Rice

My MIL makes a very good chutney almost similar to this. Also try making raita (reminds me to blog about it) out of it, it tastes great too!

We don't get these greens here. What is the appropriate substitute for this? The chutney looks drool-worthy!
