Normally we make keerai masiyal or keerai sambhar or keerai poriyal, I wanted to try something different at the same time healthy and tasty too,  so tried this recipe and it came out very well. In this recipe I have used Mulai keerai / Amaranth Leaves , you can use any type of Keerai/greens. Here is the recipe of Mulai keerai rice / Amaranth leaves rice.....
