Thotakura (Amaranth Leaves) Curry

Leafy vegetables are so innovative , we can make dal , pulusu , curry and even ad them with chicken or mutton. Today i made a simple curry with fresh thotakura that i got from a vendor who comes in the morning with loads of fresh greens everyday.


Thotakura - cleaned and chopped 3 cups packed
Onion - 1 medium finely chopped
Green Chillies - 3-4 sliced (acc to your taste you can adjust the number)
Curry Leaves - 2 sprigs
Milk - 1 cup
Water - 2 cups
Oil- 2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds - 1tsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
Garlic - 2 cloved crushed
Haldi powder - a little
Salt - acc to taste

-Heat oil add the garlic and fry till it turns brown , now add the mustard seeds , jeera and red chillies , fry for 2 min.
-Add the curry leaves , green chillies and onions and fry till the onion just start to brown.
-Now add the thotakura and stir well and coo for 10 min till the water evaporates.
-Add turmeric and salt and cook for another 2 min.
-Mix 2 cups of water in the milk and add to the curry.
-Cover with lid and cook till all the liquid evaporates and a nice thick gravy is left.

With the same procedure we can also make Spinach Curry.
