Monji Haakh: Kohlrabi cooked in Kashmiri Style
Adapted from: https://www.awayinthekitchen.com/post/monj-haakh-kohlrabi-cooked-in-kashmiri-style
2-3 kohlrabi with leaves
1 tbsp mustard oil (can substitute chili oil or vegetable oil)
1/2 tsp asafoetida (an amazing Indian spice, substitute an equal amount of garlic or onion powder if you can’t get asafoetida)
2-3 dried red chilies
2 whole green chilies (you may prick the chilies slightly)
1 tsp salt, or to taste
Using your hand, remove the long stems from the bulb or use a knife to cut off the stems. Remove the leaves from the coarse stems and keep aside. You may tear extra large leaves into two but don't chop them too small.
Peel the kohlrabi and slice the bulb into medium thick pieces. Give the leaves and sliced bulb a rinse and keep aside.
In a wok or pan, heat mustard oil till it smokes. Then, add asafoetida and the kohlrabi slices. Braise them for 3-4 minutes and then add 3 cups of water, and then add salt and chilies. Bring it to a boil.
Add the leaves and give a mix. Now cover and cook on low heat for 5-7 minutes. Open the lid and then let it simmer on medium heat for 15 minutes or until the leaves and vegetables are tender.
If cooking in a pressure cooker, use about 2 cups of water and cook for 5 minutes (1 whistle on high pressure and another 1-2 on medium heat), and after removing from heat, release pressure by lifting the whistle using a spatula.
Serve with rice and some yogurt.
