Kale !!

Here is some poetry for you.

Kale I may,
eat some day.
But hey,
that day was yesterday!

The end

 Raw kale thoran
A thoran is a Kerala style mildly spiced stir fry of vegetables seasoned with plenty of  grated coconut. This recipe veers slightly off the course since kale here is not cooked, would have never told you about this otherwise :) Cooked kale is not my pal, don't tell anyone.

Kale very finely chopped - 4 cups

Carrot finely chopped - ¼ cup

Beetroot finely chopped - 2 tbsp.

Grated fresh coconut - 1 cup

Mustard seeds - 1 tsp.

Cumin - ½ tsp.

Turmeric - ¼ tsp.

Green chilies chopped ( optional ) - ½ tsp.
Garlic minced - 1/2 tsp.

Lemon juice - 1 tsp.

Olive oil or coconut oil - 1 tbsp + 1 tsp.

Salt to taste

Add 1 tbsp. olive oil, lemon juice and salt to the chopped kale. Mix well with your hands, pressing the Kale down frequently for 2-3 minutes. Toss in the finely chopped beetroot and carrot, mix well and keep aside. Heat 1 tsp. oil in a small pan. When the oil is hot , add mustard seeds, wait till it stops spluttering. Add cumin, green chilies and  garlic, stir fry for a couple of seconds. Add coconut, some salt and ¼ tsp. turmeric,mix well. Turn the heat off. Sprinkle the seasoning over the marinated kale mixture in the bowl. Toss with a wooden spatula, pressing down firmly. Keep covered for 5 minutes before serving
