Bok Choy Kootu

I love this chinese bok choy as anything, i usually cook them as stir fry along with seafoods or meats, but i love these bok choy as gravies with our Indian spices, after a long hesitation i prepared this delicious and healthy kootu with chopped bok choy and with a special spice powder prepared using flax seeds along with few Indian spices, enjoyed having this kootu with spicy chicken roast for our sunday lunch..Sending this yummy kootu to CWS-Flax Seeds guest hosted by Priya,event by me..
