Basella/ Mustard leaves - a really healthy, green n nutritious diet, famous in South Asia. I always thought it was really hard to cook!! But when i stepped into cooking,  and learnt from my mom in law, I found it wasnt a big deal, u can say u have to boil it n grind it n thatsss it!! wooo!! Rich in Iron, these leafy veggie is just so gud to taste buds that one can't stop from having it. Slurppp.. Some people love to have it with makki chapati, made by corn's flour.
