This Malabar Spinach or Vaalchi bhaji grows as a long creeper and it is rich in anti-oxidants, thus providing numerous health benefits. Since it is rich in iron, it can be used to treat people suffering from anaemia. The high vitamin A content can be used to maintain a healthy eye-sight.
Malabar Spinach Curry or Basella Soppu Curry or Vaalche Bhajiche Tonak is a recipe which is almost extinct. This is a traditional Goan recipe. As you all know that nowadays with more and more gourmet foods and junk entering Indian markets, people have started losing the healthy traditional recipes. Talk to today’s generation about this curry and most of them would not know anything about it.
This time when hubby got home this vegetable, he told me to make this curry. I called mom and she gave all the directions over skype. So, here I am sharing with you all a nutritious and healthy recipe. Do try it. You can serve it with rice or with rotis or bread. It turns yummy. This recipe is very uncommon as it is made from one particular type of leafy vegetables.
