Russian term or phrase: джусай
This is an herb that goes in a recipe of фунчоза. Please don't say leek or chives, we got those already and the source says it's not the same as either. Help? Thanks!

  -> Thanks, George. The ProZ glossary search doesn't always work well for me, but if I search a term in Google and add "proz" I get any ProZ discussion about the term. Didn't do that this time, though :).
