Ingredients to make Keerai (greens) Sambar

  • 1 cup finely chopped greens (any greens)
  • 1/4 cup Toor dal
  • 10 small onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tomato, finely chopped
  • 1 green chilly
  • 4 small pieces raw mango
  • 1.5 tbsp sambar powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • oil as needed
  • salt as per taste
  • For Seasoning:
  • 1/2 tsp mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Urad dal
  • few curry leaves

How to make Keerai (greens) Sambar

  1. Wash the toor dal and add 3/4 cup of water. After 30 minutes pressure cook for 3 to 5 whistles.
  2. Heat some oil in a pan and add finely chopped onions and green chilly. Saute it for a minute and add the chopped tomatoes.
  3. After 2 minutes, add the chopped greens and saute it till the greens wilt. Then add 2 cups of water and cook on low flame.
  4. When the greens are cooked well, add the raw mango pieces along with the cooked toor dal, sambar powder, turmeric powder and salt. Mix it well. Let the kuzhambu boil until it reaches thicker consistency and all the masalas blend together with the sambar.
  5. Heat a tsp of oil in a pan and add mustard and urad dal. When it splutters add curry leaves and add it to the sambar. Keerai sambar is ready. Serve it with potato fry.

My Tip:

You can use any type of keerai(greens) for this sambar. If you want, you can add 1/4 cup of ground coconut paste when adding toor dal. Instead of toor dal you can add moong dal or masoor dal. Raw mango enhances the flavour and taste of the sambar. If you don't have raw mangoes at hand, substitute with little tamarind juice or 1 more tomato.
