    1. Hi maria
      I use Around 3 to 4 varieties of greens... A little of everything Palak leaves, little bit of dill leaves, chakota leaves English name :mountain spinach, little fenugreek leaves, hulli soppu ( don't know the English name for that) in bangalore we just ask the vegetable vendor for soppu sar greens and they will give us an assortment of greens..let me.know if you like it :)
      Thank you
