Our Story:
In January 2014, I started a distribution company for vegetables that are not regularly available here in Chennai. The idea was born out of my own frustration of not having access to a regular supply of salads and greens in the local markets. 


The fruits, flowers & vegetables that I offer are all farmed in India. They are

grown in professionally managed farms, owned by my family, who have been in the business for the last 30 years. Only minimum quantities of approved pesticides are used responsibly whilst growing the vegetables. In other words, we take care to make sure there are no traces of fertilizers or chemicals on the products by the time they are harvested. Wherever appropriate, the produce is washed after harvesting, before packaging and shipping. The produce is also chilled on harvesting which ensures freshness for a longer period.

The vegetables & fruits are packed in standardized  bio-packs, and you will find the size and quantity of each pack mentioned on our website. Today we also sell cut-flowers.

Kale with Chana & Coconut

This vegetarian dish, with chickpeas, spiced greens, and yogurt, is halfway between chana masala and saag bhaji - a great side to curries. 

INGREDIENTS:

1 Tbsp butter
1 onion, finely chopped
thumb-sized piece of ginger, grated
2 heaped tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp ground coriander
2 Tbsp tomato purée
200g kale large stalks removed, leaves finely shredded
400g can chickpeas, drained
250ml vegetable stock
50g fresh coconut, grated
4 heaped Tbsp Greek-style yogurt
1 Tbsp mango chutney

INGREDIENTS (TO SERVE):

1 Tbsp vegetable oil
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp freeze-dried curry leaves (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

1. Heat the butter in a deep frying pan, add the onion, then soften gently for 5 mins.

2. Turn up the heat and add the ginger and spices; fry for 2 mins until fragrant. Stir in the tomato purée.

3. Add the kale, chickpeas, stock and two-thirds of the coconut, stir well, then cover the pan. Bring to a simmer and let the kale steam for 10 mins until very well wilted.

4. Mix in the yogurt and chutney, then season to taste - don't boil once the yogurt has gone in. Remove the pan from the heat, and leave it covered to stay warm.

5. Heat the oil in a small saucepan. When it's hot, add the garlic (and curry leaves, if using) and sizzle for 30 secs-1 min until the garlic begins to turn golden.

6. Spoon the oil, garlic and curry leaves over the chickpeas and kale, then finish with the remaining coconut.
