Bachali Kura Ava Pulusu -- How to make Bachali Kura Ava Pulusu -- Malaysian Spinach with Mustard Soup

I really donno what it is called bachali kura in English....as it is available only in the states of Telanana and Andra Pradesh of India. When I googled it found some name as Malaysian Spinach to it. We make dal, ava pulusu i.e. soup with mustard masala and also curry combined it with elephant foot yam. All of them can be taken with rice. It is a leafy vegetable. 
The recipe I am mentioning is in semi liquid consistency. It is a mixture of sour and bitter taste. This is mainly made only in the eastern parts of Andhra Pradesh and that too in Brahmin community.
