If you are anaemic and requiring folic acid then you should eat as much green leaves as possible. Using green leaves in Curries and other dishes is good, but it will not give you much of the required nutirients as you will be eating less quantity of green leaves that way. Hence best method is to just fry them and eat. Here is the most simple recipe which tastes wonderful. My mother asked me to just fry the green leaves in a drop of oil and sprinkle little salt and eat daily to improve haemoglobin level in the blood. But I just made little modification and prepared it like this.
What you need
4 bowls of Fenugreek leaves cleaned and washed. Take the tender part of the plant and discard the roots and hard stem. You can use all leaves and tender stem also.
One onion finely chopped.
Salt 1/4th table spoon
Red chilly Powder 1/4th table spoon
Oil – 1 table spoon.
Turmeric powder – a pinch
Heat oil in a pan, add pinch of turmeric powder followed by Red chilly powder. Then add the onions and fry till they are golden brown, now add finely chopped fenugreek leaves and fry till all the fresh green leaves change their color. Now sprinkle salt and reduce the heat to sim. Close the pan with a lid or plate. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes. Do not let it over burn.
Remove from heat. Now the leaves would have reduced to a quantity of one bowl or 1/2 bowl. Just eat it without any accessories!!! Or you can eat with roti or rice.Tell me how it tasted..
You can sprinkle little salt if you feel the leaves gave bitter taste.
