What is Kashmiri Swiss Chard Curry – Sochal?

So traditionally this recipe is made with mallow leaves. Mallow leaves are not easily available in the U.S. You can typically find them in Asian grocery stores like HMart. Mallow is part of the large family of Malvaceae plants that include cotton, okra and hibiscus. I really love the simplicity and taste of this recipe and I decided to attempt it with Swiss Chard since Swiss chard is easily available across grocery stores in the U.S.

What ingredients do I need to make this recipe?

2 bunches of fresh swiss chard/red chard, oil, asafoetida, whole dried red chili peppers, Kashmiri chili powder, ground ginger, salt, serrano peppers, and Kashmiri tikki masala.

How do I make this recipe?

Prep the chard stalks and leaves: Rinse out the Swiss chard leaves thoroughly. Firstly, strip the leaves randomly by hand into 4 to 5-inch pieces each. You can discard most of the long stems, just keep a few. The stems can be tough to cook.

Cook:

Firstly, when you are ready to cook, place a deep wok and deep pan on medium-heat. Second, add oil to the pan. Third, when the oil is hot, add in asafoetida and 2 whole dried red chili peppers.

 

Let it sauté for a minute. Further, add in the chopped swiss chard. Stir well and let it sauté for two minutes.

 

Furthermore, add in Kashmiri chili powder, ground ginger, salt and mix well. Additionally, reduce the flame to low and let it cook for 5 to 6 minutes uncovered until the leaves start eliminating water. Moreover, stir intermittently to prevent the chard from sticking to the pot. Finally increase the flame to medium, add in serrano peppers, Kashmiri tikki masala, and let it sauté for a few minutes until most of the water is evaporated and the leaves and soft and tender.

 

Finally enjoy with steamed rice.
