Cheera Thoran

We don't get this variety of Cheera in the stores here.This was homegrown (by a family friend). It always reminds me of home .My maternal grandmother used to grow Cheera in her backyard and used to make this on most days .This is one of my favourite "Thoran" since childhood days. I love it with rice and curd.

  1. Cheera/spinach - red or green variety 1 bunch(cut thin)
  2. Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
  3. green chillies- 5 cut into rings
  4. garlic - 2 cloves chopped
  5. Onion - 1 medium chopped
  6. curry leaves - 1 spring
  7. Oil - 1 tbsp
  8. salt - to taste
Heat oil in a pan and splutter the mustard seeds.
Add in the garlic,onion and green chillies and saute.
Add the cut greens and stir in an open pan until it wilts (If there is lot of water content - keep on high flame and let the water evaporate)
Add in the grated coconut and salt to taste .
Stir and cook covered for another 2 minutes.
