Amaranth Stalks, Oats & Channadal Stir-fry

Usually after making out keerai masiyal, my mom used to make either kootu or simple stir fries with the tender amaranth stalks...Its quite a routine at our home whenever my mom get those amaranth greens, i got a bunch of this amaranth leaves two days back, after making out some masiyal with amaranth leaves, there were some matured amaranth stalks and i dont want to discard them, finally i pressure cooked those mature chopped stalks with channa dal and prepared this delicious stir fry along with oats, quite a simple stir fry which goes awesome along with rasam or curd rice, everyone at home loved this delicious stir fry and now i wont ever discard those matured amaranth stalks anymore coz i can make more beautiful dishes with those stalks with different combos na...Sending to Akila's DNSW- A..
