Beet Greens ZuNka

This zuNka is similar to the other ZuNka recipes I shared on this blog. However, the beet greens add a nice change to eyes and palette.

Beet Greens ZuNka
1 bunch beet greens, shredded
salt to taste
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp sugar
1/3 cup besan/chickpea flour (or as needed)
1 tsp oil

1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp asafoetida
1/2 tsp turmeric powder

1. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed wok or kadai. Add mustard seeds, asafoetida and turmeric powder.
2. As they sizzle, add beet greens. Stir fry till they are wilted and cooked. You may need to sprinkle some water but do not put too much water.
3. Add salt, chili powder. Stir well. Now sprinkle some besan, a spoonful at a time. Add 1 tsp oil. Stir till besan appears cooked.
4. Cover and let it cook for 2 minutes. Switch off the gas. Serve with chapati.

Note -
1. More oil can be added if your diet permits. It adds better taste.
