Gloriously Green Keerai Sambol

Updated: Sep 28, 2017

Growing up my mom kept telling us to eat keerai(greens) to increase our memory. After you get use to this slightly bitter taste, this sambol actually tastes great and feels so fresh. There are many ways to consume greens, in a juice, salad, boiled, but this is so delicious.

"Adding this keerai sambol to your meal will add more nutritional value to your meal. It has many medicinal values. You can make it too! "


  • 2 cups of Spinach, washed

  • One white onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 Inch of ginger

  • 2-3 Dry red chillies

  • 1-2 Green Chillies

  • 1/4 Tsp grated coconut

  • 1 Tbsp of lime juice, adjust as preferred

  • Salt to taste

  • 1 Tbsp of coconut oil


  1. Heat oil in a pan and add spinach, salt, and dry red chillies

  2. Put 2 tbsp of water and saute it until soft.

  3. Remove from stove and let it cool.

  4. Throw in all the ingredient (including the water) except lime juice in a blender.

  5. Squeeze some lime juice and serve still warm with other curries and rice.

  6. Voila :)

As a general rule, you should aim to eat at least five servings of vegetables daily (that’s about 2 1/2 cups of cooked vegetables), and that includes leafy greens. As long as they’re prepared in a healthy way, leafy greens, like other non-starchy vegetables, are a great addition to your diet and offer countless health benefits.
