Keerai koottu/greens koottu

Keerai koottu/Greens koottu:

We know that greens have tremendous health benefits, which help us in all aspects to improve our health care.Doctors too suggest to include any type of greens everyday in our meals.

This koottu variety is better than all another method of cooking because it is close cooked in little water not sauteed.Any variety of Greens can be used to make this koottu,I have used Brahmi/Vallarai in this koottu.Mild spices added and good combination with Puli Kuzhambu or Kara Kuzhambu.This is simply awesome with the aroma of Garlic and ghee, can serve with plain cooked rice.
