Prologue: Go here.

06/13/2012: Bachali Aaku Pulusu Kura - Bachali Aaku otherwise called as Pooi Leaves. An interesting conversation at the grocery store led me to this dish.
She: "What are these"
Me: "Some green leaves. It says Pooi Leaves"
She:"What are you going to do with it?"
Me: "I dont know. Will search on google and see what recipe can be made and then cook" (beaming a smile)
She: **Astonished and laughed walking away with some of the leaves".

I knew the leaves looked familiar but could not place them accurately until when I googled what Pooi Leaves means. LOL! We used have climbers of this leafy vegetable in my parent's home, and I totally forgot how they look like. He he. Never the less did not forget the recipes mom used to make. Here is one with my modification.
