Pui Saager Chorchori (Malabar Spinach & Vegetables)



Chorchori is a wonderful Bengali dish which is a melody of vegetables and here I have combined it with the goodness of  pui saag. The right way is to mix it with rice and have it. Then you can follow it up with rest of the dishes. Personally speaking even my little one does not make a fuss while eating it. He just gulps it down without knowing what is he eating. Just love the sight of it.


Ingredients:
3 bunches Malabar Spinach /Pui saag (don't throw away the stems but clean and cut into 1" pieces
1 big Potato, cut into medium size
1 Radish (mooli), peeled and cut into 1" pieces 
1/4 cup Red Pumpkin, unpeeled and cup into 1" pieces
2 Green chillies 
1/4 tsp Panch phoron (a mixture of 5 spices:Radhuni, onion seeds, aniseed, fenugreek and cumin seeds)
1/2 Turmeric powder 
1/2 tsp Chilly powder 
A pinch of sugar (optional)
Salt to taste
2 tbsp Mustard oil


Method:
Clean and wash the leaves of spinach by dipping in cold water and let it sit for a minute. And then lift into the colander to drain out the excess water. Do it twice or thrice thoroughly to remove any remaining dirt.
This is how Malabar Spinach (Pui) looks like...
Heat oil in kadhai, add panch phoron and fry till it stops spluttering. Add all the veggies except the malabar spinach and stir fry for few minutes. Add all the spices, stir in all the spices, cover and allow to simmer for 5-6 minutes. When the veggies are half done , add spinach leaves, cover and stir in between. Just when the veggies are cooked and the chorchori is nearly dry, you can add a pinch of sugar. Remove from heat and serve this with plain rice.
