Kempu Harive Soppu Huli / Red Amaranth Leaves Curry

Posted by Veena Karanth at 00:41:00
The recipe which I am posting today is purely a Mangalorean cuisine and of course it is one of my favorite curries. It goes on well mainly with piping hot rice. As you can see in the image, the curry is very bright in color mainly due to the red amaranth leaves which is the key ingredient in this recipe. I doubt the availability of these leaves all over the globe since it mainly grows in coastal Karnataka. Check out your nearest Indian Store for more information.

Kitchen Masti Points.

  1. You can forgo the garlic if you wish so.
  2. While adding Corn flour mixture, see to it that the Corn flour powder is mixed with 3 tbsp of water, stir it well and then add it to the curry, or else,  lumps may form in it.
  3. You can use coconut oil for seasoning purposes to get an authentic Mangalorean taste.
  4. Garnish with a tbsp of butter while serving the curry.
