Affordable, easy to prepare, vegan and healthy!!!!
Nettles as an Indian main course
When I visited Ashok’s mountain village, I not only gained a lot of experience, but also came to know a delicious and easy recipe for preparing stingy nettles as vegetables!!
Recipe for 4 people
1 kg nettles
50 g rice
Salt to taste
20 g corn flour
1. The nettles must be collected! That’s probably the hardest part of the whole meal making! It is best to use gloves!!! Since the nettles coincide sharply when cooking, you should collect a lot!
2. Now the nettles must be sorted and washed. Aua 🙂
3. Bring the complete plants including stem in water (approx.250 ml, not too much) to the boil along with the rice and then simmer it on a low flame for about half an hour. Always look into the pot and stir. Salt can be added after 10 minutes.
4. After 20 minutes, crush the nettles with the trowel to a porridge and add the corn flour. Stir again and again and bring to the boil again, done!
The vegetables taste good with Indian bread, but can also be eaten with rice or like spinach with eggs and potatoes- german style :)!
Enjoy your meal!
