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
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)
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.
Heat oil in a pan,add cumin seeds,mustard seeds when pops up,add red chillies fry for a mintue.Then add garlic pieces fry for 2 minutes.
Then add onions saute until the onions are cooked.
Add the chopped kale and salt mix well,fry for 5 minutes.Then add water and close it 3/4 th with a lid.(Do not close fully).
Once all the moisture is absorbed add grated coconut (i don't have coconut ,i didn't added) .saute them until everything is mixed well and no moisture is left and turn off the stove after a couple of minutes.
healthy stir fry ready.
