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!
