Naadan Cheera Aviyal

Cheera or Spinach is a leafy vegetable which is a rich source of iron.
It is prepared using cooked Cheera with Coconut paste. We can use Mango or Curd instead of Tamarind syrup for sourness.


  • Chopped Spinach/Chuvanna Cheera(Leaves and Stem) - 2 cup
  • Red chilly powder - ½ tsp
  • Turmeric powder - ¼ tsp
  • Grated Coconut - 3/4 cup
  • Shallot -2 nos
  • Raw Mango - ¼ of a mango
  • Coconut Oil - 1 tsp


  • Cook Chopped Spinach in water along with Chilly powder, Turmeric Powder and Salt.
  • Grind together Coconut and Shallot to paste.
  • When Spinach is cooked well add Mango cuts and cook for few minutes.
  • Add Coconut paste into it and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Remove from Fire and add Coconut Oil and mix well.

(If you are using curd for sour taste, add it just before removing the dish from the stove - do not boil curd).

Recommended Combination: Serve hot with Rice.
