How To Prepare Amunututu Leaves by k4kenny(f): 2:55pm On May 11, 2013
Hi all. So I recently got these amunututu leaves from a nice neighbour's veg gardens. Problem is I'm not familiar with it at all. The leaves are short and broad, I was told they are similar to water leaves (gure).
Is there anyone out there that can give M̶̲̅ε̲̣ a simple procedure on how to prepare d stew? Heard you can add bitter leaves to it. Awaiting ur response. Fenks yall smiley

Nice recipe! Amunututu is one of the best vegetable around, better prepared with little bit of egusi (melon). You wont eat this everyday so the little egusi is ok; this goes with all the solids (similar to the red hibiscus - isapa).

Where can I find the seed, need to plant some?
