Kale Egg Rice or Kale Scrambled Eggs

Now, this is a very healthy and nutritious dish…

Last week, while grocery shopping I piled up more green veggies on my cart than anything else. Kale, spinach, lettuce, swiss chard etc were my healthy picks. Every time I look at these greens, one dish that rolls in to my mind is Kerala style Thoran or veggie stir fry with coconut. While getting ready to make a dish with kale, part of my mind was constantly hit with the idea of making thoran. Well, the other part of mine which loves to try variety took a totally different route.

I did follow some of the thoran preparation style. First cooked the kale with coconut and spices, then for a twist I added egg and rice to it. It was a complete dish with greens, eggs and rice. This can be eaten just as it is along with yogurt or pickle or if you insist on having a non-veg along with it, you could serve this as a side dish.

You could try this recipe without adding the rice, here is the picture of Kale scrambled eggs:
