The result of the combination of green gram dal and greens(sirukeerai) renders a wonderful and delicious kuzhambu for steamed hot rice.


Green gram whole 200 gms
Sirukeerai one bundle fresh
Pearl shallots one cup
Green chillies three
Curry leaves one sprig
Salt to taste
Sesame oil one tablespoon
Adequate water
Cumin seeds one spoon
Mustard seeds one spoon
Half tomato


Dry roast whole green gram until a fine aroma emanates.

Set aside to cool

Blend the whole gram for a while using wishk button until the gram split.

Wash the gram one or two times and cook with adequate water, turmeric and two drops of castor oil.

In a separate pan, add oil and heat.

Add mustard seeds to pop up.

Add shallots, green chillies and curry leaves.

Followed by chopped tomato cubes.

Saute well until the shallots turn transparent.

Add turmeric and washed sirukeerai leaves.

Saute until the leaves get shrink.

Add cooked green gram dal and adequate water.

Add salt.

Allow to cook the greens with green gram.

Now, the greengram sirukeerai kootu is ready to have with hot steamed rice.

It tastes very good, if we add one spoon of ghee.😇😊
