Yield: 4 Servings
|1 teaspoon||Ground cumin|
|2||Cloves garlic, sliced|
|1 teaspoon||Fenugreek seeds|
|6 smalls||Young turnips|
|Pinch of turmeric|
Heat the oil in a heavy-based saucepan with a tight-fitting lid. When the oil is hot, remove the pan from the heat and add the cumin, garlic, chillies, fenugreek seeds and curry leaves. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes.
Peel and halve the turnips, then cut them into very fine slices. Season these slices with a pinch of turmeric and the salt, then add the turnips to the spices. Cook, covered for 5-10 minutes, making sure that the vegetables do not stick to the bottom of the pan. Keep the pan covered and leave over a very low heat for a few minutes. No water is needed to tenderise the turnips. Serve hot.
