Stir Fried Greens and Milk Soup

The ones you see in the yesterday's picture.

These greens are called Chakota here in Blr. They are slightly nutty and mildly tangy. This is a simple stir fry I made to go with the Baby Corn Lollipops. This method can be used for any greens it would still taste good. If the greens have a tangy taste good else add a dash of lemon to give it a zing.


1 big bowl of chopped Chakota/ any greens
2 dry red chilies broken
2 teaspoon sesame seeds
salt to taste
1 teaspoon oil

In a wok heat oil. Fry the red chilies and then add the sesame seeds. Fry till golden. Add in the chopped Chakota. Keep stirring till dry. The salt must be added just before removing from heat. When stir frying green one has to be careful with salt as you will see lot of the bhaaji at the start but in the end the quantity reduces considerably.

For the soup

Take 1 tablespoon of the stir fried green and add 1 teaspoon sugar and adjust the salt and boil with 1 cup milk.

At home all of us liked the greens but Dad did not like the soup. It is an adventurous recipe Ok to try for the heck of it.


  1. I never knew of milk being used an appetizing agent...good information though

  2. yah i never heard of milk soup!! interesting, would be good to make kids eat their greens!

  3. Soup with greens? sounds different, will try sometime.

  4. how does the chakota taste with the milk? does it retain its taste?

  5. Bhags, Dumela this soup is more of a filler than appetizer. Greens does make it colorful. It is quite a different take if it suits kids you can try to give it to them. I don't have kids yet so don't have experience on that.

    Priyanka yes it does retain its taste and it is kinda crunchy.


Thank You for taking the time to leave your thoughts here.
