    What do we say "Khada" that is available in Baripada and Mayurbhanj, Keonjhar Are (Hopefully other areas of Orissa also). This is mainly a leafy vegetable, but the stems are used for making curry. But other than Orissa, nowhere I can see use of "Khada". A similar thing "Laal Saag" is available but it is used more as a Saga than curry.
