Purslane is a weed which grows in moist land. Most of us think that it is a weed and pull it out. Well, I have done that and repent it now. This succulent is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and which is more than the fish oil. So it is advised to consume regularly. There are 2 types of these greens. One with a green stem and the one with a reddish stem. The grocerer here sells the green stem variety. This paruppu keerai masiyal is cooked with the green stem purslane.
