    hi sree chandra,

    Agati means, Corkwood tree. And Sesbania grandiflora is its Binomial name.

    Sesbania grandiflora (also known as agati, syn. Aeschynomene grandiflora) is a small tree in the genus Sesbania. It is believed to have originated either in India or Southeast Asia and grows primarily in hot and humid areas of the world.

    This produce widely available in Sri Lanka. In sinhala language it is called
    " KATURUMURUNGA" Leaves are eaten as a vegetable dish as an accompaniment with rice& curry. this is a very popular green leaf vegetable in Sri Lanka.

    I think now you are clear.

    Thumbs down Vazhai Poo Curry

    Ingredients:

    1 Plantain Flower
    1 tsp urad dhal
    1/2 tsp turmeric
    1/2 tsp mustard
    1/2 tsp onion chop it (oprion)
    1 or 2 red chillies
    1 tbsp oil
    2-4 tbsp grated coconut
    asafoetida a pinch
    salt to taste
    1 - 2 sp oil

    Method:

    Wash and clean vazhai poo.
    In a pan pour some water and add chopped vazhai poo.
    Add turmeric powder and salt. Mix well.
    Close the lid and allow it to cook.
    Once cooked, drain the excess water and set aside.
    But it is good to use correct quantity of water.
    Take 2 tablepoons of oil in a pan and make seasoning.
    Add chopped onion.
    Add the drained plaintain flower and fry for about 7-8 minutes.
    Add grated coconut and fry for a minute.
    Remove from the fire.
    Serve with Rasam rice.

    Note: You can clean the vazhai poo in the night and use in the morning. In that case put the chopped vazhai poo in a bowl and pour 1/2 cup butter milk and add water. Mix well and keep it in the fridge. By doing this you can avoid the colour change of vazhai poo. Otherwise it will turn black in the morning.
