An everyday preparation of Tamil Nadu, this South Indian subzi is made of red amaranth, perked up with a spicy coconut mixture. We have reduced the amount of coconut to a healthy level so that you can have this without any qualms.

Different types of greens are available in abundance in South India, especially in the summer months when vendors sell it from door-to-door every morning. So, people love to buy the greens fresh and cook them for lunch.

This Thandukeerai recipe is one of the most common ways of cooking iron-rich amaranth. It is quick and easy and tastes great with Rice, Sambhar or Rasam.
