This recipe is an interesting variation on the dal wada/ pakora. In this particular recipe the aim is to showcase this wonderful ingredient called the Moras bhaji/ Chiu chi Bhaji. This is a special leafy plant that grows in the marshy mangrove areas. Its speciality is its incredible resistance to salt content in the soil. This salt seems to permeate into the vegetable. The leaves are not flat but slightly swollen and juicy. Resultant taste is bafflingly salty, slightly sour and the texture of the leaf is crunchy almost like biting into salty chip. This appears for a very short period in the markets and we can owe this largely to the gujarati community that consume this leaf as a snack to compensate for their salt-less fast that they have to follow for periods upto 5 days straight. This keeps the salt cravings at bay.
