sawi -

Sawi is a group of plants of the genus Brassica used leaves or flowers as food (vegetables), both fresh and processed. Sawi includes several species of Brassica that sometimes resemble each other.

In Indonesia the mention of mustard greens usually refers to the green mustard greens (Brassica rapa parachinensis group, also called mustard meatballs, caisim, or caisin). In addition, there are also chicory (Brassica rapa pekinensis group, also called petsai) which is usually made soup or processed into pickles.

Another type sometimes referred to as the green mustard greens is the vegetable mustard (to distinguish it from the caisim).
