Wirsing sauteed in sesame seeds

    Wirsing comes from the cabbage family and is a new vegetable in my kitchen.It looked so fresh in the supermarket that I could not resist picking it up.The leaves look like crumpled cabbage leaves,very crisp and softer and cook pretty quickly. I tried this and it turned out like a good warm salad and the smell of sesame and curry makes it very appetizing.
Wirsing cut into strips                1/2
Sliced onions                             1 no
Sliced green bell peppers           1 no
Olive oil                                    1 tbsp
Mustard seeds                           1/2 tsp
Sesame seeds                            1 tbsp
Red chilli                                  1 no

Chilli powder                           1/2 tsp
coriander powder                     1/2 tsp
Lime juice/amchur powder       1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Heat oil and add mustard and let it splutter.
