When I searched for its family I found that it is an edible fern.
Not aware that fern is edible. Thanks for showing this new plant.

Young emerging leaves of many ferns especially Dryopteris are relished as a vegetable in Western Himalayas, locally known as kunji. the scales on the rachis are scrapped before cooking it.

We call them 'Ningro' in Nepali in Sikkim. There are many edible
varieties.
People prefer them cooked with local cottage cheese called 'churpi'.

I have also seen them being sold outside Guwahati station.
