Basale Soppu / Malabar Spinach Saaru

Basale Soppu Saaru

Basale soppu is one of my favorite leafy vegetables from childhood, I used to bug my mom to prepare this every time. This is very easy and quick recipe, today I am going to share  my own recipe of  Basale Saaru here.


Set 1: 

Basale soppu, Yellow Dal

Set 2:

Onion- 1


Red chillies- 4 to 5 ( according to your taste)

Garlic- 2 to 3 cloves

Coriander- 1 tablespoon

Zeera – 1 tablespoon

Coconut- Freshly grounded 2 to 4 tablespoon


Wash and cut Basale soppu and boil it with little salt. Cook yellow Dal ( half cup) and keep it ready. Now take ingredients under Set 2 and grind it smoothly into paste and add this to boiled basale soppu along with cooked Yellow Dal. Add 2 tablespoon of  tamarind juice and bring the contents to boil. Check the salt and adjust it according to your taste.

Basale soppu saaru is ready, serve it with hot rice or hot Raagi mudde 🙂
