Kale Mallung| Simple & Healthy Sautéed Kale Recipe in 2 minutes

Are you interested in seeing an interesting way to make simple & healthy kale? Keep on reading to get the recipe. I have also attached step by step photos for you. 

According to the well known Health-line website; Kale Is Among The Most Nutrient-Dense Foods on The planet, Loaded With Powerful Antioxidants, Excellent Source of Vitamin C, Help Lower Cholesterol, Best Sources of Vitamin K and list goes on. 

Let’s find an interesting way to make kale without destroying the nutrients. 

Back in the day, the only way I made kale was sautéing them. But lately figured out this super cool way to make kale. My Sri Lankan friends know about “ kola malum” which is a side dish we eat with rice. 

In Sri Lanka, we have certain greens that can be made as “ Mallum”. So this is my adaptation of malum using Kale

Here I have separated the leaves from the stem

Now let’s cut these cuties into very small pieces like how you would chop cilantro 

Put the greens into a saucepan 

Add all the spices mentioned in the ingredients list and mix everything 

Now I have added shredded coconut ( i have used frozen shredded coconut mixture or use freshly grated coconut depending on availability)

Now add coconut oil or olive oil and sauté for 30 seconds to a minute. When it’s done it will start to reduce in size

Take off the heat and add a few drops of lemon and serve 😍 

Ingredients

  • 1 Bunch Kale ( 5 Stalks)

  • 1/2 Cup Grated Coconut

  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Onion (Optional)

  • Few Chopped Cherry Tomato (Optional) 

  • 1 tsp Tumeric

  • 1 tsp Salt

  • 1/2 tsp Pepper

  • 1 tsp Chili Flakes

  • 1/4 Wedge Lime

  • 1 tsp Dried Maldives Fish ( Optional) 

Instructions

  • First, separate all the leaves from the stem. Use your hands to pull the leaves from their stems. 

  • Now let’s cut these cuties into very small pieces like how you would chop cilantro.

  • Put all chopped kale into a saucepan.

  • Add all the spices mentioned in the ingredients list and mix everything.

  • At this point, I still haven't switched on the stovetop. Add shredded coconut (I have used frozen shredded coconut or you can also use freshly grated coconut depending on availability).

  • Now switched on the stove, add coconut oil or olive oil and sauté for 30 seconds to a minute and that's all, you are done. ( Tip: When it’s done it will start to reduce in size).

  • Take off from the heat and add a few drops of lemon and serve. 

Viola!! You have a healthy and tasty kale dish. Enjoy!
