My Late Mother In Law’s Recipe of Mor Keerai to beat the summers this year is the most tastiest gravy or sauce recipe from the South Indian Cuisine. Subtle spices, leafy greens and a silky coconut gravy to pair with Steamed rice and veggies on the side is the perfect way to enjoy summers. Tastes best with home made Raw Mango Pickle or Instant Manga Kari Pickle and a dollop of curd rice to end the meal.
If we talk about seasonal foods, consumption of leafy greens are restricted or rather completely avoided during the monsoons at most homes, including mine. Hence, summers would be the best time to make use of the leafy greens and get the maximum health benefit. Also, Spinach has a good amount of water content, which helps us remain hydrated too during summers. Encourage consumption of palak or spinach by preparing parathas, gravies or detox drinks. Adding baby spinach leaves in salads help too.
