Hi all, I am new to this site. I was just searching for the meaning of Pohi. I saw this in H-Mart.I think it is Bachchali Koora in telugu. Can anyone confirm this. Thanks, Vindya...

Hi Indira, Sandeepa and Katherine, I saw the discussion about Pohi leaves. Thought I will add some info. Hope you don't mind. The pohi leaf is also used in the Indian Odiya cuisine similar to the manner that Sandeepa mentioned. I will be posting a pic of the same this week in case anyone is curious. I know there are a few other recipes. Will check with my MIL and aunt-in-law and post about it sometime in the near future. Apologise for the lengthy comment.

[...] I love Jihva. As usual, a month ago I had visions of the marvelous dishes I could cook up for Indira’s First Jihva Anniversary: Green Leafy Vegetables. How exciting! I love them all: collards, chard, spinach, sorrel, on and on… if it’s green and leafy, I’ll try it at least once. But that was a month ago. [...]

Indira and Sandeepa, thank you so much for your comments. I went away on vacation and then forgot to come back here and look for your response for a little while! The red/green ones are indeed amaranth, so glad to find out. I wonder why they were labelled "red data" at my market, what language that is from. I'm so glad to see plenty of amaranth postings when I returned! I think Sandeepa is right about the other leaf, it is not the stuff used to make paan, but more spinach-like. It must be "pui", because "pooi/pohi" are logical alternative spellings of that. So glad that I can come find good information from you guys! I love this blog. best, Katherine

[...] Serve with Rice, cooked Plain and a Upkari, maybe chilled buttermilk on the side. Looks like a good ‘red’ entry to JFI-Greens. [...]

Hi Katherine I ready your comment and am taking up this space to answer. Hope its ok, Indira. The "pooi" shak I think is what we call "Pui Shak" in Bengali Some sites(https://tspace.library.utoronto.ca/bitstream/1807/6011/1/hn05049.pdf) refer to this as Indian Spinach, but it is a little different from the regular spinach. A popular use of the "Pui" leaves in bengali cuisine is dipping the Leaves in a batter of Besan and frying them. Cooking the leaves with shrimp is another popular one. I don't know of its usage in other Indian cuisines though The Red Data is I think what Indira says the Red Amaranth leaves Try Googling for "Pui Shak" and "Data Shak", You will get some results and also recipes

hi Indira -- since you mention greens, i thought i would take the occasion to post you a question in the comments section -- at my local Indian market (Patel Bros. in Jackson Heights, NY) there are two kinds of greens that seem very interesting to me, but I can't find anything about them online when I Google... one is a thick, big green leaf and seems to be labeled "pooi" or "pohi" (depending on who is doing the labelling). The other is red and green color, mixed, and is labeled "red data" (you can imagine what comes up when I google the word 'data'). Can you help point me in the right direction as to figuring out how to cook with these? Of course maybe your upcoming JFI will answer some of my questions -- I can't wait! Thanks, Katherine Indira replies; Hi Katherine, Thanks for your interest in JFI-Greens. Red and green color mixed one - I think it's amaranth leaves. We call these leaves "thotakura" in Telugu. You can find many Indian recipes on Yahoo/Google search. Many bloggers have written about traditional preparations with these leaves. The thick big green leaf, I need a photo. My guess is they are used to make paan. "Tamalapaku" in Telugu or betel nut leaf. Here is how they look - link. Is this what you are refering to as pooi/pohi?
