Starting from washing and squeezing out some of the bitterness to make it more edible

You may want to learn how to wash the leaves here.

I got enough water and salt to wash the leaves.
Constant squeezing in water then sieving out the green extract.
This was done repeatedly for about 6 times to get a level of bitterness one can enjoy in a meal.







This has been a part of my diet for a long time and bitter leaf is seen in our vegetable garden as well.
