Kale Stir fry Kerala Style


Today it being St Patricks Day, I  thought of making something green to mark this day. So I made our favorite Kale stir fry in Kerala style or should I say my mom style.This is one stir fry we at my home never get tired of eating  and one that has become a once a week staple dish.This is an easy dish to put together,and goes well with rice.
Ingredients:
Kale-1 bunch
Coconut grated-1/2 cup
Onion-1/4 cup
Green Chilli-2 sliced fine
Salt -to taste
Mustard seeds-1/2tsp
Oil-1tbs
Red dry chilli-1
Method:
Wash and separate kale leaves and stems. Shred leaves and thinly slice the tender part of the stems.Mix kale, coconut, onion ,green chilli and salt well.You can literally rub each ingredient together using your hands.Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. When it starts to splutter add the red chilli and the kale mixture. Stir well and cook covered for 2 minutes.Open the lid and stir again. Put the lid back on and cook for another 2 minutes,continue this till kale is cooked to your likeness.We prefer it not overly cooked ,so 5 minutes or so is all that I cook.
