Red swiss chard is an excellent substitute for chomala cheera - Red spincah that we get in Kerala...I have already posted one yummy charu curry with its stem . This stir fry is a very simple preparation which goes well with rice . Swiss chard are at its best during june - August and is widely available in all super markets.Make use of this highly nutritious Greens at the right time...
Ingredients:-
Red swiss chard - 1 bunch
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Shallots / Onion - 3 tsp
Garlic - 2 clove
Ginger - a small piece
Green chiles  chopped- 2
Curry Leaves
Mustard seeds
Oil
Salt to taste

Method:-
Crush garlic, ginger and shallots in a coffee grinder or mortar and pestle.Add this to the grated coconut and combine well using hands by adding chopped green chiles,turmeric powder and salt.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they pop up add curry leaves and chopped red swiss chard and saute for 3-4 minutes.
Add the coconut mixture and combine well. Bring everything to the centre of the pan and cook it covered on a medium flame for 7-8 minutes. Uncover it, saute again for 2 minutes and remove from fire.
Serve warm..
 Cheers
