Pui Shaak / Basella alba spinach


Pui shaak / baseala leaves 1.5 lbs

Shrimps 5 pcs

Onion sliced 1

Garlic sliced 1 tbsp

Green chilli 4 pcs

Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp

Salt to taste

Shredded coconut 2 tbsp


Wash pui shaak under cold water. Cut and separate the stems from the leaves. Stems require longer time to cook, so we'll cook them first followed by the leaves.

Heat oil in a wok at medium heat. Add onions and sauté until translucent. Add garlic, turmeric powder, pui shaak stems, grated coconut and salt to taste. Cook for 2 mins, generously stirring. Add shrimp and cook for another 2 mins until they are cooked. Add pui shaak leaves and stir everything together. The leaves will shrink as they cook. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat once cooked, serve hot with bhaat!
