    blue, ash gourd nna poosanikai nee parthadhu illaya........dhristhi poosani nnu solluvangha when it is hanged outside the new home.

    ash gourd is different from chowchowmarrow.Ash gourd is very big in size but not the chow chow .I think u got confused seeing the light green color for both.

    btw, Are u sure is there a kilangu called raasavalli?

    maravaLLi kizhangu is the name I know.. not raasavalli..

    casava roots theriyumaa? Same kizhangu.. we make chips also with it, apart from eating the boiled ones.. :P

    Also the javvarisi etc are made using this.. I should know, since about 90% of indian javvarisi is made in my dist.. :P :P My school is surrounded by fields too, and one season they flat out grow only these kizhangu.. very tasty.. :P

    Kappha kilanghu = maravalli kilhanghu
    Not true... Kappa kazhangu is actually a bit longer an thinner than maravalli kezhangu.

    Collard greens and Kale - I have used them like spinach for sambar or plain-cooked spinach..

    Water cress & swiss chard.. usually use it for stirfry (with some meat for me.. but not necessary, you can use tofu also)..

    Comes out good... :P
