Green Harvests from a small Balcony


From seed to seed.
Had taken these organic seeds from Deepika in Auroville.
basella ( mayalu )
Harvested the leaves and made a delicious sabji 
with them. Enough for a family of four.
Well here goes the recipe......

Peanuts, tamarind and green chillies to be ground finely.Heat oil in a pan, add mustard and let it splutter. Add garlic flakes and finely chopped onions, add the peanut paste, turmeric powder,chilly powder
Finally add the finely chopped mayalu leaves. Once done add salt to taste and serve hot.

The plant has gone into seeding .... and I am saving the seeds for next year.
Who wants the seeds?

Lots of smiles
