You can use a combination of greens eg. spinach, fenugreek and other greens if yo so like.
Dill gives it a nice flavour so it is good to include it.
Adjust the chillies to your taste. Skip ginger or garlic as per taste.
Serve with pickled beetroots to add even more iron to the meal. It tastes good too.
This tastes good even when cold so you can safely pack it in your kids' tiffin boxes. They will love its taste and colour.
