Ingredients required to make chavali chi palebhaji (green amaranth sabzi)

Chavali / Cholai/ Green Amaranth Leaves: I used a big bunch of this green amaranth, which is 2 1/2 cups of chavali leaves.

Onion: I used one big finely chopped onion. Onions enhance the taste of this palebhaji / sabji.

Spices & herbs: I used only a teaspoon of red chilli powder, turmeric powder, hing (asafoetida) along with mustard seeds in this recipe.

Seasonings: I seasoned this chavli chi palebhaji with salt & sugar.

Oil: I used sunflower oil for making this amaranth sabji.

Water: For cooking the vegetable.

How to make Chavali Chi Palebhaji (green amaranth sabzi)

  • For making chavli chi palebhaji, we require only the leaves and not the stems. Hence first we will have to remove the leaves from the stems. Discard the stems.
  • Wash the leaves in water to get rid of the mud. Let it sit in a colander/strainer for a few minutes to help remove excess water.
  • Take a handful of chavali leaves and chop them finely or roughly as per your preference.
  • Once we have our chopped chavali ready, let’s start making the bhaji / sabji.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and let them crackle. Once mustard seeds crackle, add hing (asafoetida) and turmeric powder.
  • Add finely chopped onions.
  • Saute onions for 5 minutes.
  • Add the chopped chavali leaves and mix well. Add just 1/4th cup of water to help chavli / green amaranth leaves cook.
  • Add salt and cook uncovered for about 5-6 minutes.
  • Add sugar and red chilli powder and mix well. Cook for another 5 minutes or till the leaves are cooked perfectly. Keep on stirring in between.
  • Our delicious chavali chi palebhaji / green amaranth sabji is ready.
  • Serve it with phulka, roti or as a side dish with dal rice.

Note:

I have used red chilli powder in making this vegetable, you can instead add green chillies too.

You can also make this vegetable without onions.

For a gluten-free recipe, avoid hing (asafoetida).
