Mulukhiyah , molokheyya ,molokhia or mulukhiyyah (Arabic: ملوخية‎ mulūkhiyyah) Greek : molokha is the leaves of Corchorus olitorius, commonly known in English as jute, nalta jute, tossa jute , jute mallow or Jew's mallow. It is used as a vegetable. It is popular in Middle East, East African and North African countries and is called “Saluyot” in the Philippines. Mulukhiyah is rather bitter, and when boiled, the resulting liquid is a thick, highly mucilaginous broth; it is often described as "slimy", rather like cooked okra. Mulukhiyah is generally eaten cooked, not raw, and is most frequently turned into a kind of soup or stew, typically bearing the same name as the vegetable in the local language. Traditionally mulukhiyah is cooked with chicken or at least chicken stock for flavor and is served with white rice, accompanied with lemon or lime.
