Bathua Saag

Bathua, popularly known as Pigweed, is a leafy vegetable mostly available in North India. We get them in South India very rarely and that too in winter season. We get very rarely vegetables like Sarson (Mustard leaves), Knol Khol and bahua in our local markets. Whenever we get them I buy them and make as many as possible recipes with them. This season we are getting bathua leaves abundantly, so I am trying my hand.
This leafy vegetable looks like gongura or sorrel leaves, but tastes differently. Sorrel leaves have sour taste, but bathua does not have any specific taste.
I have to plan ahead to cook bathua saag. We have to discard the leaves from stem.
