Cheera Mutta Thoran / Red swiss chard - egg stir fry



Today I am sharing the recipe of Cheera-Mutta thoran. I used red swiss chard for this recipe. My mother used to prepare this at home using "red cheera" which we get back in kerala. Its a very delicious and highly nutritious dish. Red swiss chard is a good source of vitamins especially A,C and K.

Serves ~ 2 adults

Ingredients

Red swiss chard / Red cheera ~ 1 bunch
Eggs ~ 2 Nos
Grated coconut ~ 1/2 cup
Garlic ~ 2-3 cloves
Cumin seeds ~ 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder ~ 1/4 tsp
Red chilly powder ~ 1/2 tsp
Green chillies ~ 3 Nos
Shallots / Kunjulli ~  3 Nos
Curry leaves ~ 1 stem
Salt to taste
Oil


Method

  • First wash the red swiss chard / cheera and chop it into very small pieces. Then drain it in a colander. Note: You can even use the stem / thandu of cheera.
  •  Grind coarsely grated coconut, cumin seeds, garlic, turmeric powder and shallots.  
  • Then heat oil, add mustard seeds. When it crackles, add chopped cheera/ swiss chard, chopped green chillies and curry leaves. Just sprinkle little water and salt and then cook covered in a low flame for about 7-8 minutes. Then add the ground coconut mixture and mix it nicely and keep it uncovered for another 3-4 minutes. 
  •  Meanwhile beat the eggs by adding little salt and red chilly powder. Then add the beaten eggs to the cooked cheera/ red swiss chard and keep on stirring until the eggs are cooked and becomes dry.
Enjoy with Rice. 



Cheers!!
