One of the community gardeners gifted me with some seeds of a favorite
Indian green yesterday. She doesn't know the word for the green in English,
but it produces a thick green leaf which is eaten like spinach. The seeds
are grey and lumpy about the size of the small aquarium gravel, and they
look familar like something I might have grown at least once, but not in a
long while. In the telegu language the green is called batchala with the
second a having a sound somewhere between a short a and short i sound.
Although I know about 20-30 words of telegu, this is not yet one of them.
Anyone have any ideas about English names or have any telegu speaking
friends to ask?
