Thotakoora - Tomato Koora (Amaranth Leaves-Tomato Stir Fry)
Thotakoora/Amaranth leaves are well known leafy vegetables in most households. We usually make a stir-fry or stew (pulusu) or pappu (dal) or chutney with these leaves.
Amaranth leaves possess so many health benefits. They are rich many vitamins like K, A, C, B2, B6. They are rich sources of Omega 3 fatty acids, iron, calcium and protein.
I grabbed these Amaranth leaves as soon as I saw them in the Indian store. They were so fresh and beautiful. I used some leaves for the stir fry and store the remaining leaves (washed and chopped) in the freezer for later use.
OK. Let’s go to the recipe.
