Kale Subji

Kale is one of the healthiest green leafy vegetables. It is also often called as super-food. Kale is very rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin K1, and fiber. It also has a lot of essential minerals. Kale belongs to the family Brassicaceae (old name Cruciferae). Some other common vegetables of this family are mustard, radish etc. Kale is used in smoothies, soups, stir fries, and salads, etc..

Here I have made dry Kale vegetable Indian style. It tastes very much like Mooli ki sabji (radish leaf veggie). Kale grows well in mild winters. In fact, in October after the first frost when our entire kitchen garden had turned brown, kale was the only veggie hanging green. Fresh green kale is available in stores in the entire winter season in our city. Please feel free to replace it with radish green leaf if you do not find kale …. Kale tastes very good with regular dal-rice, roti, and also with paratha.... So please try this extremely healthy kale sabji (veg) and do share your comments…
