This is easy, yummy and nutritious south Indian style araikeerai recipe. I love araikeerai kadaiyal a lot. (Araikkeerai means Amaranthus, Indian spinach, Kadaiyal means puree). Though I prepared this kadaiyal with araikeerai, you can also prepare this kadaiyal with mullaikeerai or seerukeerai or palak keerai (spinach) or paruppu keerai. When I was young, my mom used to give keerai sadham for lunch box by mixing this keerai kadaiyal with rice and ghee. Potato fry or colocasia fry goes well with this keerai rice. This is my mom’s version of keerai masiyal. I don’t get araikeerai in my place (US) so when I was in India few months back, I made this keerai kadaiyal recipe at home and took photo using my mobile for my blog. So try this south Indian style araikeerai kadaiyal for lunch with hot steamed rice and ghee.
