Mangold recipe

Another super food is Mangold leaves. Widely used in mediterranian cooking, this leaf is not so common in the northern parts of India where I come from. Nonetheless I gave it a try and totally loved the final result. Simple, easy and quick – this is the best recipe to prepare right after work and ensure a healthy diet.


4-5 mangold leaves with stems washed and chopped into small pieces

4 Potatoes chopped into small vibes

2-3 table spoon cooking oil

1/2 tsp Cumin seeds

1/2 tsp Mustard seeds

2-3 whole black pepper

Salt to taste

1/2 tsp red chilli powder

1/2 tsp Turmeric

1 tsp dried coriander powder

1/2 tsp black salt


Heat oil in a pan and add the cumin and mustard. Also add the black pepper. Give it a few seconds till they start to crack and add potatoes. Fry on medium-high flame and when the potatoes start to become a bit brown add in the chopped leaves. Stir and let it cook for a minute. Now stir again, add all the spices and mix well. Cover with a lid and cook until the potatoes and the stems of the Mangold are completely cooked.

Serve hot with rice or chapati.
