Jute is an edible leafy vegetable, rich in vitamins and fiber. Jute in Assamese called Mora xaak. There are two varieties of jute leaves found in Assam. One is little bitter in taste which is known as Titamora. The other one which is not bitter is called Mithamora. The difference between these two jute plants is that the stem of the bitter plant is black in colour while the colour of the other variety which is not bitter is white.  Jute leaves can be added in lentil soup. I add knotted jute leaves in lentil curry. We can make Khar recipe with jute leaves.
