 In this fast moving world, we have to eat healthy and nutritious food. To enable this we are getting cut fruits, chopped vegetables too. We are also getting chopped spinach too. But even if you dont get chopped spinach you get cleaned spinach all that you need to do is just chop it using vegetable cutter or chopper. Once this is done, cooking gets very easy.

Greens - 1 bunch or chopped greens 3 cups
Oil - 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Whole Urad dal - 2 tbsp
Asafodieta - 1/2 tsp
Red Chillies - 4 nos
Salt - 1 tsp + 1/2 tsp 

Wash and clean the greens. Add 1/2 tsp of slat and wash it again. Ensure it is free of sand. You can even wash it for 3 to 4 times. 

In a pressure cooker add 1 spoon of oil and  10 ml of water. Add the washed greens and cook it for 3 whistles. Rest it till the pressure can be released. Open add 1 tsp of salt and mash it well. 

In a tadka pan add the oil and when hot add the mustard seeds and let it splutter. Add the urad dal, asafodieta, red chillies and add it to the greens. Mix well. It goes well with Vathakuzhambu, rasam rice and curd rice.
