In our 10 day stay at Khajari village, 80 km from Raipur, the capital of Chattisgarh, each meal was an awesome delight! Chattisgarh is known as the rice bowl of India. Fragrant rice was a part of every meal. Sometimes breakfast too found rice flour chila and farha served with Jho jho, a prized regional tomato sauce. More about those lovely dishes later… Right now it is overwhelming enough to see this list of 36 greens, mostly homegrown in the kitchen gardens in village Khajari. This list doesn’t mention the all too familiar coriander and mint, or does it? Please share pictures if you recognise some of the greens. Thank you:)
