Sabasige soppu upkari / Dill leaves sabzi

Hello dear readers ! Today I will share one of the healthy recipe called as “Sabasige soppu upkari” . Sabasige soppu means Dill leaves. This green is very healthy especially  post delivery . It purifies and fills the blood. The greens resemble like tender coriander leaves and is one of my personal favourite. It has a distinct smell which some dislike but if its cooked right it tastes the best. I also read that Dill is a weed. I first tasted this after my 2nd delivery.  And I started liking it after I tasted Santoshi Nayak’s preparation.
