Picture of a commonly available vegetable in manipur locally known as “Ekai-thabi”.  Mostly eaten raw with “Morokmetpa” (Manipuri Chilly sauce) or used in “Kanghou”.

Please drop by a comment if this vegetable is eaten in any other place other than in manipur.  

Thanks to Rakesh Sougaijam for sharing this photograph.
