Manathakkali keerai thanni saaru

I love Manathakkali. Both my mum and my MIL does this very often as they get this from their backyard. When we are in school we used to fight for the fruit from it too..My mum does lot of dishes with it. Most of the time I do only mannathakkali kootu. Recently I have started making thogayal with it also. Kids love it also.

Manathakkali Keerai - 1 bunch (When taken leaves it is about 2 cups)
Coconut milk - 1 cup (I have used thin one. If you are using thick one you can reduce the qty)
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Small Onion /Shallots - 7-9 (peel and slice it thinly)
Green Chillies - 2
Roasted gram dhal powder - 1 teaspoon (make it to powder)
Salt per taste
Oil - 1 teaspoon
Water as required


Heat the kada and add oil. When oil is hot add onion, green chillies and cumin seeds. Fry till onion is cooked. Add keerai and water and let the keerai cooked. Add coconut milk and mix well. Let it boil for 20 sec. Add roasted gram dhal powder and mix well. Cook for another 2 mins. 
Switch off and serve hot with rice
