Beets with Malabar Spinach

You need:

  • Three medium sized beets cut into one cm squares.
  • Malabar Spinach also called Basella, chopped up. You can also use regular Spinach.
  • A teaspoon of cumin and mustard seeds.
  • Two green chillies.

Heat oil. Preferably something with some flavor in it. I used sesame oil but you can also use coconut or mustard oil. Saute the cumin, mustard and green chilies. Add the beets and cook on low heat, covered. Five to ten minutes is enough to soften them up.

Now add the greens and cook on medium heat, uncovered. They will be done in less than five minutes.

Enjoy.
