Green Stir fry - kenyan style/ Sukuma Wiki/ Green Collards stir fry

Green vegetables stir fried are the best way to be enjoyed. I have been growing spinach in my kitchen garden for 6 months now. It is always a happy feeling to pluck the baby green leaves which are tender juicy and much more tastier than the ones from bought from market.

In maharashtra this is exactly the same way we make green leafy stir fries...

So on the 8th day of our mega marathon, making a simple stir fry recipe from kenya which is made with simple vegetables and seasoning. Served with Ugali popularly for breakfast...





Ingredients
1 bunch of green collards/ spinach
1 onion finely chopped
 1 tomato finely chopped
1 tspn turmeric powder
1 tspn cumin seeds
1 tspn black pepper powder
salt to taste

2) Add the tomatoes and spinach leaves roughly chopped along with salt , pepper.
3) Cook until the leaves are wilted
4) When done, serve with corn bread, ugali or simple bread or rice dish.
