Kerai mor kootu ( spinach with buttermilk)

- 5 cups chopped spinach
- 1 cup butter milk
- 1 tspn rice flour

- 1/2 tspn oil
- 1/2 tspn methi seeds
- 1/2 tspn mustard seeds
- 1 tspn channa dhal
- 3 red chilies

1. Boil spinach with salt till it becomes tender. Then puree it in a blender.
2. Mix butter milk and rice flour in a bowl.
3. In a pan add all the seasoning ingredients and fry till channa dhal turns into a light brown color.
4. In a pot add the spinach, butter milk and the seasoning ingredients and let it simmer. Make sure it does not boil too much because butter milk has the tendency to curdle at high heat.

Serve it hot with rice.


Instead of rice flour you can use 1/4 cup shredded coconut, 1 tspn channa dhal and 3 red chilies. Grind it to a paste with the butter milk and pour it with the spinach puree. Use the same seasoning except the red chilies.
