Tanduljanu Shaak



I spotted frozen "Tanduljo" at our Indian stores. My MIL had mentioned about it so I was curious to try it. Not sure if it's similar to "hirwa maath" or "chawli" in Marathi. I followed my MIL's method to make this simple leafy greens.

Tandulja nu Shaak
Gujarati Leafy Greens
Ingredients
1 frozen packet of Tanduljo
salt to taste

Grind to a coarse paste*
4-5 Garlic cloves
3-4 green chilies (more or less per taste)

Tempering
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 small onion, chopped
*Garlic-Chili paste

Method
1. Thaw frozen Tanduljo. Rinse it and keep in a colander.
2. Heat oil in a saucepan.
3. Add onion and turmeric powder. Saute till onion is soft.
4. Add garlic - chili paste. Saute for 3-4 minutes.
5. Add rinsed and drained tanduljo. Add 1/4 cup water. Cover with a lid.
6. Let it cook till it's soft. Add salt to taste.
7. Let water simmer completely or keep some water per preference.

Note -
1. Always add salt in the end as after cooking, leafy greens tend to shrink.
