Hindi term or phrase: Dalda saag, bhutiya dhaniya
here's the quotation:

...the garden was feeding them almost entirely. For the first time, they were eating the real food of the hillside. Dalda saag, pink-flowered, flat-leafed; bhutiya dhaniya growing copiously around the cook’s quarter; the new tendrils of squash or pumpkin vine; curled ningro fiddleheads, churbi cheese and bamboo shoots sold by women...

these appear to be local leafs or vegetables from around kalimpong in northern india. can you tell me please, if any, the proper english words for them?
