Amarnath Leaves and Peanut Stir fry

If you are fond of Amarnath leaves aka chauli, then I'm sure you will love this simple and nutritious curry. This curry is so simple and so quick to prepare, that it makes me wonder how this can taste that good. In this recipe, the sauteed greens are combined with toasted peanuts and lightly spiced for the flavour and aroma.
