Koduvi Ghassi

                                 Come Monsoon season every open space turns green with various plants growing vigorously. This is also the season you can easily find Koduvi growing luxuriantly in your backyards ! Koduvi as the name suggests are very bitter leaves  but we GSBs know to unlock the powerhouse of nutrients in them & use them to make very tasty dishes ! We can find  koduvi in fields also most of the time but it is in rainy season that their leaves are comparably bigger !
This is the Koduvi I found in my backyard – now that it is rainy season in Kerala !
Now that we have cleaned the leaves well & washed them thoroughly – lets make a delicious Ghassi with it !
