Siru Keerai Thandu Soup

Siru Keerai is also known as Amaranthus tropical in English. It is a very healthy greens variety that is very popular in South India. Usually when we buy siru keerai, we use the leaves alone and discard the stems but we can make a tasty soup out of these stems.

This soup is very good for those with kidney problems and for those with diabetics. It also helps in digestion. If your kids won't eat greens, then you can make such soups and give them and they will get all the benefits of the keerai through this soup.

This is a simple method to make this soup, you can also make this soup more tasty by adding onions, tomatoes and some garlic.
