|Garden Harvest: Broccoli Leaves and Side Shoots, Chard, Peapods|
On Tuesday, I picked a few items from my little vegetable plot - broccoli leaves, chard leaves, two broccoli side shoots, and about seven peapods which were big enough to pick.
What to do with all this harvest?
I decided to make a stir fry with the peapods and the broccoli side shoots. I cut off the stems from the broccoli leaves and chard and added them to the stir fry, along with two carrots from the fridge and some corn from the freezer!
The chard leaves were cut into fairly big pieces and sauteed with a mixture of dried chili flakes and spices, just as I would cook spinach.
The broccoli leaves were cut into smaller pieces - sort of shredded:

Then, sauteed with frozen grated coconut, a bit of finely minced onions, some green chilies, turmeric, chili powder, etc., and turned into something we call "mallung", which is one of the most popular ways to cook any leafy greens:
