Method:-

Kale 1 big bunch
Onion-1 nos (medium) (chopped)
Garlic-7 nos ( sliced or chopped)
Mustard seeds-1 tsp
Cumin seeds-1/2 tsp
Red Chillies-3 nos
Grated Coconut-2 tbsp (optional)
Salt to taste
Oil-2  tsp
Water- 1 cup (you need 1 cup of water if the leaf is thick,if you choose tender variety of kale you need not use this much water)



Method:-



Before you proceed with the process make sure you clean it sufficiently as the curly corners can trap dirt and you will end up with bad experiences.First strip the leaves from the tough stem.Fill water in a big bowl and plunge the whole pile of kale into it,shale the leaves vigorously and let them sit for five minutes.Remove the leaves from the water.Change the water and do the same couple of times and drain them in the colander.Now chop the kale 1/4 inch using knife ,keep it aside.

  13. Everyone is crazy over Kale these days , I have tried it and I think that the taste is a bit over powering when mixed with other greens. but since this is only a simple stir fry, I think would be a good try for me to start using Kale :)thanks for sharing
