You are sure to be using chawli, and even its a vegetable, quite commonly used in your cooking. Have you ever tried using its leaves, which are a storehouse of folic acid and iron? Chawli bhaji is a simple but tasty preparation of chawli greens. A purée of the greens tempered with a traditional combination of mustard, urad dal and chillies that is very common in South Indian cooking. Since the chawli leaves are naturally bitter so you may find a little bitter taste in the subzi.

Chawli by nature is a bit bitter, but when cooked in this form its bitterness reduces... benefit from its iron and folic acid and make up your haemoglobin levels.

Chawli leaves pureed and cooked with curry leaves, urad dal and Kashmiri red chillies to form a liquid pureed vegetable. By nautre, chawli is bitter but this veggie tasted good and is extremely healthy.

Same subji with different names in different books; but still no please. Very bitter. Instead of that try one with masoor dal or one with coconut milk. This one we just couldn't eat. Very disappointing.
