Collards, kale, and turnips.
Remove the stems from the greens and plunge them into boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain them, and rinse them in cold water.
Press out the excess water, and pulse the greens in a food processor until they're finally chopped. Set them aside.
Grind 1 inch piece of ginger with the chopped serrano chili into a paste. In a skillet or kadhai, heat 2 Tbs of vegetable oil. When the oil is hot add in the nigella seeds & the ginger chili paste.
Stir fry everything until the nigella seeds start to crackle in the pan, about 2 minutes. Toss in the turnips, along with the ground coriander. 1 tsp of turmeric, 1/2 tsp of salt.
Stir everything around for about 3 minutes or so then lower the heat, put a lid on the pan and cook until the turnips are tender, about 15 minutes. Set the turnips aside.
In a skillet or kadhai heat 2 Tbs of vegetable oil. When the oil is hot add in the chopped red onion.

Add in a pinch of turmeric, 1/4 tsp of Kashmiri chili and 1/4 tsp of amuchur powder or lemon juice. Stir everything together well and add in 1 tsp of salt. Add in 1/2 cup of yogurt (or soy yogurt).
Stir until it's gently heated. Add in the turnips.
Heat everything together. Sprinkle 1 tsp of garam masla over everything, stir it in and serve it up. These turnips and greens, paired with a rice dish, all you need for a great Meatless Monday lunch.
