Mustard greens stir fry with dry bamboo shoots

Lai Xaak or Mustard greens is a green leafy vegetable. Mustard greens contain a lots of vitamins and minerals and as such very healthy and very tasty too. I love this green leafy vegetable very much . This vegetable has a wide use in Assamese cuisine.  From making salad, chutney and many veg recipes , a very tasty fish curry recipe can also be made.

Mustard greens stir fry with dry bamboo shoot is a very simple recipe,  made without spices. Assamese recipes are less spicy recipes but much more healthy. Sometimes adding powdered spices spoiled the real taste of the vegetables.  So do try this simple recipe for healthy living.
