Kale Thoran/Poriyal




Kale ,its one kind of cabbage.I got this information from one of the blog,when i was  searching about the thoran.Thoran is one of the side dish served in all kerala meal..you can prepare the thoran using any of the vegetables..Leafy vegetables can be perfect for thoran and also we can have all the proteins in a very tastier form instead of eating the raw one.
You can find this leafy vegetables in almost all grocery shop..you can search this in the leafy vegetable area...I assure if u try it sure u will love this taste..First we also confused whether it will be tastier or not..after having the kale thoran we really loved it especially my husband..so now its a common item in our kitchen..
Cost of the item : .99 usd /pound sometimes a bunch for 1.99usd
Preparation time : 15-20 minute

Ingredients:
Kale : 1 bunch
coconut:1/4 cup
Garlic : 1 small clove
cumin seed: 1/4 tsp(optional)
salt :to taste
Green chli : 2 nos
water : to cook
Turmeric powder : 1tsp
For Seasoning:
Oil : 2 tsp
Mustard seed : 1 tsp
Redchili : 1 no
Curry leaves :4-5 leaves 
Preparation:
Step 1 : Wash  and drain the water from kale.cut into small pieces.include the stem too.

Step2:Boil the kale with salt, turmeric powder and green chii for 5-10 minute in medium heat.

Step3: Heat oil in a pan ,add the mustard seed once it started spluttering add the red chili and curry leaves.once the leaves and chili get saute add the boiled kale into it. 

Step4: Let the mix to fry for 3-5 minute then add the grated cocunut crushed garlic and cumin seed.

Step5: close the pan and let it boil for 5-7 minute ,stir in between...

Points to ponder:
  • Donot cut the leaves into very small pieces
  • Donot add more water just sprinkle that will be good 
  • If u like spicy add more green chili.
