I wanted to try Kohlrabi after seeing this recipe. I really loved the refreshing flavor and texture of this cabbage family member. It has long green stalks that are completely edible.
Kohlrabi - 3, diced along with the greens
Onion - 1 medium, diced
Garlic - 1 clove, minced
Tomatoes - 2 medium, chopped
Green chilies - 2, chopped
Tamarind paste - 1 tbsp
Jaggery - 1 tsp (or to taste)
Red Chili powder - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste
- Microwave chopped kohlrabi for 5 minutes or until tender. (Pressure cooking works fine too)
- Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan, add the seeds and after they pop, saute onions till translucent.
- Add tomatoes and green chilies; cover and cook till tender.
- Add boiled kohlrabi along with the greens, red chili powder, tamarind paste, jaggery, salt and 1/2 cup of water. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes or till the gravy thickens.
