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.
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
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.
