KOMATSUNA (japanese mustard)
One thing common between JAPAN and PUNJAB?? GUESS??Sarson :)) can u believe it? Yes it true u do get green mustard here :) known as KOMATSUNA:)It has a lovely sharp flavour to it and recently its been in my weekly hit list :)its yum, easy, and low cal :)) like i want it to be.No pre-preps needed :)
2 bunch Komatsuna chopped and washed.
3 pods crushed garlic
1 tbs wheat flour
green chili lengthwise slit (acc to taste)
1 tomato chopped or 4 tbs canned tomato.
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp cumin
pinch of asefodia
Heat oil in a pan and add cumin and asefodia. Once crackled add crushed garlic
and green chili, and saute for few seconds, then add the chopped komatsuna to it.
Add salt, turmeric and wheat flour to it. Mix well.Adding wheat flour will make a semi thick gravy for the veggie.Keep it covered on medium heat for about 5 min. As the green's simmer down add the tomatoes and cook on high flame :)
Serve with Hot chapatis :)
