Chettinad Keerai Masiyal

It is customary here that kids are introduced to syllables of the first language on an auspicious day of Vijayadasami. They are taught to write the alphabets on this day. Similarly, grown-up children are encouraged to enrol themselves in a music, dance or other art school today. Now I do feel the same as I resume my blogging after a lull of quite a few months. I have shared a simple recipe for a rich and intriguing keerai masiyal which was served to us when we dined at a restaurant in Madurai, my home town, a few months ago before the onset of pandemic.

Chinese Spinach

I am thankful to the creator of The Popeye show for motivating my son, a picky eater, to have a liking for insipid spinach even at his tender age. This cartoon show made my job easier to convey the importance of taking wholesome food and also made a small kid to understand a profound theory, “we are what we eat”.  He did not like to take spinach with rice when he was a kid, instead he enjoyed taking plain spinach just like the great Popeye did.
