Pui Saag with Shrimp Curry

Today's recipe is of a type of greeny leaf which is called 'Pui/Puhi" We call it 'Pui Saag' in Bangladesh. A very popular type of green leaf that is cooked in almost all Bangladeshi homes and eaten as a side dish with boiled rice. It is usually cooked with fish or shrimp, or just lightly fried with onions.

I cooked mine with shrimp, because my hubby is a huge shrimp lover and requested I cook it that way.
Hope you all enjoy my recipe!
