This red leafy veg has umpteen benefits.

Strengthens the hair roots and it is very good for people who are anaemic specially if it is cooked in an iron Kadhai. These are a few of the benefits
I love this dish made by my cook my namesake “Sangeeta. ”
Here I’m sharing the recipe can be enjoyed with fulkas / rice or just have a bowl of it by it self.
Prep. Pluck the leaves of the amaranth. Wash .Dont Chop
3 cups packed leaves of amaranth
4-5 cloves garlic smashed
1 medium onion finely chopped
4-5 dried red chillies
Salt to taste
2 tbsp MO
Heat the oil in a Kadhai I used an iron kadhai because it is supposed to increase the iron content of greens.
Add in the garlic and fry till it releases a nice aroma. Add in the onions and cook till soft. Add in the dry red chillies fry for a few seconds. Now throw in the amaranth leaves and add the salt. Cover and cook in a medium flame. Stir from time to time till all the liquid dries up.
