Kuthiraivali Keerai Sadam

Keerai Sadam is a healthy one pot dish that I make to pack for lunch boxes. I recently made this keerai sadam with kuthiraivali and it tasted just as good but with double the health benefits. You can make the same with other millets like samai, varagu or thinai. 
This keerai sadam is without dal and is made like a biryani, you can also make keerai sadam with dal, I will post that recipe later. I have made this rice with siru keerai, you can make it with any greens variety.
