Turnip Greens chi Bhaaji

I have heard and read that turnip greens are used and devoured in Kashmir. But I don't remember eating turnip greens in Mumbai. After coming to US, I missed my mom's paalebhaji/leafy greens. So I started looking for the greens at the American supermarkets. The only familiar greens were probably spinach & mustard greens at that time. But slowly & surely, I started using all of the unfamiliar American Leafy greens like collard greens, turnip greens, kale, swiss chard, dandelions. and now all of them have become staples in my kitchen. Today I am sharing, turnip greens chi bhaji - just the way my mom makes any paalebhaji in Mumbai.
