Naga cuisine is known for its variety and simplicity. Galho is a soupy concoction of fresh and leafy vegetables and rice with meat or without meat. It is very similar to North Indian khichdi dish. It can be prepared with meat or without meat. This time I shared vegetarian version of Galho which made with leafy vegetables, rice and fresh vegetables. I did not add axone which is fermented soybeans.
Naga people love rice recipes especially in the form of Galho. The Angami Nagas are the original creators of this dish; however this dish is now a popular food item across Northeastern India. A vegetarian galho is a very simple dish often garnished with just ginger-garlic or nothing at all. You can use any green leafy vegetables such as mustard leaves, spinach, squash leaves and more.
Ingredients of Galho:
2 Tbsps. Rice

1 Medium Sized Onion, Chopped

1 Tsp. Ginger, Chopped
1 Tsp. Green Chilies, Chopped
Few Spinach Leaves, Roughly Chopped
