Ginger Garlic paste-1tsp
Cinnamon-small piece
Onions chopped-1/4cup
Turmeric powder-1/4tsp
Curry leaves-4
Salt to taste

Method: Grind together coconut, green chilli, &pepper to a fine paste. Set aside.
Heat oil in a pan, put curry leaf, cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves once they splutter add onions & fry them for about 5mts.
Then add ginger garlic paste sauté for 1mt, add ground paste, turmeric powder, and salt & fry well.
Then add the chopped kohlrabi, little water, mix well, cover & cook till the vegetable is fully cooked.
Once the kohlrabi is tender fry well till all the water is evaporated.

Hi Radhika - the shalgam fry is a great recipe. I usually make it with red kidney beans, but now I have a new recipe. Thanks for sharing.
