Have you seen a vegetable not in its original colour or in any other aspect?In our local market, we saw red lady fingers (Bhindi) for the first time. It was something different, as we usually see only green ones in the market. The vegetable vendor said it is to be cooked just like the green one, and, in fact, turns green after it is cooked! So we bought it and indeed it did turn green after cooking.
On looking it up just now, it seems this is a unique type of bhindi that was developed by scientists a few years ago at the Indian Institute of Vegetable Research (IIVR) in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh. It is thus known as 'Kashi Lalima'.
Have you come across this type of bhindi or seen any other vegetable that is different from its usual shape, size, colour, or other aspects?
