Water mimosa

ผักกระเฉด (Phak krachet)
The stems of the Water mimosa plant are clad with bi-pinnate, fine, mimosa-like sensitive leaves that close up when touched. The leaves and shoots have cabbage-like flavor. Young ends of stems and pods are edible and usually eaten raw as a vegetable and cultivated much like rice.
