A healthy, yummy side dish for rice.


Cheera - 1 bunch, chopped fine
Small onion - 4-5, sliced or crushed
Green chilly - 2, slit lengthwise
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece, crushed
Garlic - 1 clove, crushed
Curry leaves - 3-4 leaves
Salt - as per taste
Grated coconut - 1 cup, loosely packed
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp


1. In a wok or pan, heat the oil. Splutter the mustard seeds.
2. Add the small onions, green chilly, ginger, garlic and curry leaves. Saute them for a minute.
3. Add the chopped cheera/keera and the grated coconut. Sprinkle some salt and give a good mix.
4. Sprinkle some turmeric powder, mix it up
5. Let the cheera get cooked uncovered (if you cover it, it will become soggy)
6. Once all the water is evaporated and the subzi is somewhat dry, switch off the stove.

Serve it with hot rice, curd and some pickle....heaven in your mouth!!
