GCC Award and Baby Kailan Stir Fry (Indian Style)

Yesterday, I received my badge for II place, for my Fruit Stiks recipe in the Kid Friendly Recipes, a Food event conducted by Great Cooks Community.

Very Happy to receive this award and I sincerely thank my Family and Friends, who made me to won this:)

A special THANKS to Singapore Women Community Orkut members:)

Thank you Jill and members of GCC!!!


Now moving to today's recipe. Last week I posted Baby Kailan's chinese style recipe. Today, we will see the indian style of cooking it.

Baby Kailan - 200 gms
Garlic - 3 cloves, finely chopped
Onions - 1, medium sized, finely chopped
Red chilli flakes - 1/2 tablespoon (Grind 1-2 red chillies coarsely)
Curry leaves - few
Salt to taste
Oil - 1/2 tablespoon

Cut the bottom of the stems and wash the leaves completely. Chop them into small pieces.

Since the leaves are too thick, it takes more time to cook, so steam them or you can put them in a pan, sprinkle little water, cooked it covered for 10 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan. Add chopped garlic, curry leaves, chopped onions and fry for few minutes.

Put the cooked leaves in the pan and keep stirring until all gets mixed well.

Add salt to taste, mix well and cook for 3 minutes.

Delicious and healthy kailan dish is ready to serve with Rice or chappathi.

Baby kailan contains vitamin B12, B6 and calcium. It is a good source of carotenoids. Consume diets rich in carotenoids, which will help to lower the mortality of our body towards chronic diseases. Click here for more information on carotenoids.

Very little oil is used for this recipe and that makes it healthy, so I am submitting this recipe to Healthy Cooking Event hosted by Mansi Desai.

Cooking time : 20-30 minutes
Serves 2 persons
