I’m re-visiting this recipe that I posted about 2 years ago. It features in most of Andhra bhojanams (feasts). I love it since I was little and still do. Here is how we make it: This is my entry to Cooking for Kids-Leafy Greens event. Send in your entries by the end of this month.


46 serving

Total time

50 minutes


  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 tbsp ginger (– minced)
  • 3 chilies (Green – chopped)
  • 10 curry leaves
  • 1 tbsp tamarind (paste)
  • 1 tsp Urad dal
  • 1 tsp chana dal
  • 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  • frozen peas
  • 3 chilies (Red)


  1. Heat 2tsp oil in a pan; add the tempering ingredients and once the seeds start to splutter; add ginger, green chilies & curry leaves and sauté for couple of minutes.
  2. Then add the green veggies; cover and cook on medium-low flame for 5-8 minutes or until almost wilted.
  3. In the meantime, de-frost frozen suran in the microwave.
  4. Once the greens are ready, add the suran and ¼ cup of water; cover and cook till suran is completely cooked. I like this dish smooth instead of chunky, so I mash suran with the back of the spoon at this stage. Then add tamarind paste and salt. Cook for another 5 minutes. Serve with steamed rice for a yummy Andhra meal.
