  • Keepthe red lentils to soak for about 30 minutes.
  • Rinse your red amaranth leaves and discard spoiled leafs if there are any. You can roughly chop the bunch of red amaranth with a knife or cut it with a kitchen scissor. I like to use the scissor.

  • Peel and slice your onion. Rinse your tomato and cut into smaller dices. Keep aside.
  • Heat up a pot with 1 Tablespoon of cooking oil and fry the onion first soft, then add the tomato and stir fry until soft. Now add in the chopped red amaranth leaves and cook for a minute or 2. Once the red amaranth has come down and lost some juice add the previously soaked lentils.
