Harive soppu / amaranh leaves are very healthy and they are rich in vitamins and minerals.
I have tried Dry curry / Palya using Harive leaves. 
We from Udupi and love to prepare Udupi style dishes that too without onions and garlic.
It is always better to have simple food so that you do not have any health problems like acidity or indigestion problems. 
I have used Harive soppu, fresh coconut and mustard as spice.
Udupi dishes are mostly cooked with coconut oil since they do have coconut trees grown around the place. It is a practice that eating food cooked or used coconut oil. Coconut oil said to be the best.
Let us see some benefits of eating Harive soppu /Amaranth leaves in our diet.
