Watch | Going back to edible plants


Going to the grocer in the time of COVID-19 has become a stressful affair. So consumers have been looking at alternatives to procure vegetables.

There has been a spike in people turning to gardening and foraging for food. People are now turning back to many indigenous and uncultivated edible plants.

These have deep roots in the nutrient-rich traditional diets of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Here are some edible plants that can be used in cooking:

– Wild colocasia

– Amaranthus viridis or ‘kuppa keera’

– Talinum triangulare or ‘sambar cheera’
