Keerai is the Tamil word for Greens.The health benefits of any variety of greens is known to all of us.This is the basic form of making keerai which is given to children just like paruppu sadam/dal rice.Can be had with rice or as side dish for sambar,rasam or curd rice -the traditional Tamilian lunch.Though any variety can be used,mulai keerai is usually preferred

Garlic- 5 cloves
Salt-to taste

Take the tender leaves and only very tender stems and wash well
Cook with just enough water with salt and garlic
