Red Spinach/ Cheera Curry


There are 2 kinds of spinach, green spinach and red spinach. Spinach leaf is good for all ages because it contains a lot of vitamin A, B, C, E and zinc. Red spinach contains more zinc than green spinach, so it is good for anemia.
Consume spinach regularly can prevent you from asthma, pain, and osteoporosis. The stew water of red spinach can cure fever.

Cheera/ Spinach: 1 bunch
Grated Coconut: 1 ½ cup
Green Chilli: 3

Method of Preparation
Pressure cook parippu till it is done well.
When pressure releases open the lid and add green chilli, salt and finely chopped spinach.
