Knol Khol / Turnip Leaves Curry

Knolkol ( turnip) leaves
Jeera - 1 1/2 tsp
Hing a pinch
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Salt as required
Coconut (freshly grated) optional
As you see in the picture that is knol khol which were with leaves with stalks and I just removed them and cut them into small pieces.
Wash the cut leaves nicely and keep aside.
Now take a kadai and put the cut leaves along with a pinch of hing and salt and let it cook.
Sprinkle some water on the leaves to cook nicely.
After the knol kol keerai gets cooked nicely remove from fire.
Take a kadai and put 1 tsp ghee and add urad dal and jeera and stir nicely
Now add the seasoning on the knol khol keerai and mix nicely.
The knol khol keerai curry is ready to be had either with plain rice with a few dollops of ghee or even with phulkas.
The knol khol palak is very healthy and should not be wasted.
This is a semi dry curry which has a very unique taste and is liked by everybody.
