Wash and cut the greens(Molai Keerai)  and drain the water and keep it aside.  Dry fry the fried gram and two red chillies and allow it to cool.  Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and one broken red chillies and after the mustard starts to splutter add urud dhal and after the urud dhal turns golden color add washed greens (Molai keerai) and add required salt, 1 pinch of asafetida and mix well with a spatula. Keep the flame low to avoid the greens sticking to the pan.  Now powder the fried gram and red chillies in a mixture.  The powder should be coarse.  After the greens are cooked add grated coconut and powdered fried gram and mix well.  Remove from fire.  Now the tasty and delicious Molai Keerai sundal is ready to serve as a side dish with sambar rice or any other varieties of Kuzhambu.
