Greens (Leaf Vegetables)

(Green Leafy Vegetables, Keerai Vagaigal, Mustard greens, Collard greens, Turnip greens, Radish greens, Beet leaves, Kale,Swiss Chard, Bok Choy, Spinach, Amarnath Leaves)

When the leaves of plants are eaten as vegetable, they are referred to as "Green". Almost all the greens are low in calories, high in iron content, high in vitamins and dietary fibre. They are eaten raw in salad or made into juice or cooked. It can be boiled, steamed, stir-fried or baked

Below, I have shared recipes using different greens - both the ones available in India as well as other green from around the world. I have arranged the greens in alphabetical order for convenience.

Kale is called 'karam sag' in Hindi. It is considered to be a type of cabbage and is rarely eaten in India but it can be easily consumed. In fact, very few people in India know that this green leafy vegetable exists.

Hi Tanu,
Kale is different from Spinach. I don't think you get it in India.
