Keerai Masiyal| Postpartum Diet|BM #13

Ingredients
1 Bunch Spinach or 2 cups of chopped spinach
1 Green Chilli
1/2 Lemon
1 1/2 tea spoon Asafeotida
1 tea spoon Mustard seeds
1 tea spoon Urad dhal
1 tea spoon oil
salt to taste

Method
Chop spinach.
In a pressure cooker add the chopped spinach,green chilli, salt and very little water. Cook up to 1 whistle.
Once cooked, mash well with a masher.
In a small pan add a little oil, mustard seeds,asafeotida and urad dhal and allow it to splutter.
Mix well with the spinach and then finally squeeze the lemon and serve with rice or roti.

This is the most simplest recipe ever to make.


Note:
This is very high in fiber and contains no fat at all.
This is very good for postpartum women since it contains lot of fiber.This is good to have a cup everyday.
It can be cooked with any kind of greens. I used spinach.
Green chilly can be avoided if necessary.
