I like the 'keerai kuzhambu' made out of these leaves. It tastes good with rice. As you know, it is also a popular medicinal plant used as memory tonic. Known as 'Vallaarai' in Tamil.

Indian Pennywort.
Called kodangal in Malayalam. We too cook a couple of delicious dishes
with it including a curry with buttermilk and coconut.
