How to Eat Leafy Greens Sri Lankan Style

Greens as a Condiment One of the best ways to add leafy greens to any meal is by making them into a chutney or making pesto with it. Sri Lankan style coconut green chili and curry leave chutney is one of my favorite dips for cutlets or carrot sticks. I do think however, this recipe is heavily influence by Indian chutneys made in somewhat similar way. Like, Coriander chutney. Prepping yourself a curry leaves chutney is super easy. Just puree couple of handfuls of curry leaves, half a cup of coconut, a clove of garlic, three green chilies, teaspoon of turmeric, half a teaspoon of salt, half a teaspoon of freshly crushed black pepper, tablespoon of lime juice. Apart from these common methods, we do often add them in to flat breads , salads and soups as well. As the saying goes, as much vegetables as possible in the diet is good. isn’t it ?
