More about ponnaganti koora from the ENVIS website.
Useful resource – The ENVIS centre on medicinal plants has listed a huge variety of species with vernacular names and medicinal benefits making it easy for us to identify new plants.
I learnt a recipe for ponnaganti koora from my neighbour where it is cooked with split moong dal with a light tadka. This made a delicate tasting accompaniment to rotis.
A bunch of fresh water amaranth
Water amaranth also features on some other food blogs –
Anjali in her blog Annaparabrahma does a stir fryusing these Honegone greens (that’s what its called in Kannada).
Srivalli does a stuffed paratha with these greens.
Talimpu has a recipe similar to the one given to me by my neighbour, the one with moong dal.
