Keerai poriyal recipe | South Indian poriyal recipe

Keerai poriyal
This is a very very simple to make recipe,my family loves it next to keerai kootu. I find making keerai poriyal simple than kootu or sambar,just stir fry the keerai,that’s it,accompaniment is ready! I am so confused with the names of the keerai, I am not sure if this is mulai keerai or arai keerai…but this has long stem which is edible,sometimes we use it to make keerai thandu sambar too..


Keerai poriyal recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Lunch - sides
Prep Time15 mins     |  Cook time: 20 mins     Serves: 2

Ingredients

Keerai - 2 small bunches

Onion - 1

garlic - 4-5 flakes

Sugar - 1/4 tsp

Salt - As needed

Coconut,grated - 3-4 tblsps


To temper:

Oil - 1 tsp

Mustard - 3/4 tsp

Urad dal - 1 tsp

Red chillies - 2-3


கீரை பொரியல்

Method

  1. Clean the keerai and remove the root part. Wash it properly and chop it finely along with the stem.Chop onions and cut garlic to thin circles. Heat a pan with oil and temper with the items given under ‘To temper’ table. Add chopped garlic and fry till its starts turning golden in colour.
  2. Tadka and garlic Fry onion
  3. Add onion an fry till transparent, add sugar and then add the keerai and required salt.
  4. Keerai  Reduced volume
  5. Stir slowly as the keerai reduces in volume as it gets cooked,it leaves water,so no need to add any water. Keep the flame in medium high so that the water evaporates apparently the keerai gets cooked. Cook till the stem gets cooked,you can notice it turning transparent comparatively after it gets cooked.Lastly add the coconut and stir well to get a dry poriyal.
  6. Cooked add coconut

Notes

    • Do not cook the keerai covered as it will loose its colour.
    • Also adding sugar helps to retain  green colour,I have heard it some where,but not sure though.
    • Garlic is optional to add, so feel free to omit if you don’t want to add it.

Enjoy with rice as accompaniment. We even eat this by mixing with rice and ghee/sesame oil.
