Indian Summer Greens

Very green greens, with mustard and cumin seeds, all topped off with freshly grated coconut

Hari says

There is nothing like fresh summer greens to accompany an Indian dish both because it tastes amazing but also because it makes you feel healthy. There is something very special about that leafiness and the wonderful shades of green that just make you feel great from the inside out.
This is a really simple dish to put together and the spice combinations are fantastic.

Summer greens with Indian flavours - it's fresh, it's tasty and it's healthy - Surely that's about as good as it gets?
