Ponnanganni Keerai Poriyal Recipe

Here comes a healthy recipe – Keerai Poriyal. I always make sure that I include greens in our diet atleast once in a week. Usually we get the baby spinach or fenugreek leaves. At times, we used to get different varieties that are available in India. One such is this ponnanganni keerai. I heard that it has got lot of medicinal benefits. There are two varieties, pure green one and a mixture of green and pink leaves. Both tastes really good and can be cooked the same way. Other than poriyal, this keerai can be used to prepare kootu as well. I will post that recipe when I buy this keerai next time. Adding freshly ground coconut with cumin leaves gives an extra flavour to this recipe.
