I too am looking forward to Panfusine answering. In the meantime, here in the U.S. we have radishes of all colors - white, black, red. We have leeks and peas of all kind and ramps (which I have never cooked) as well as asparagus. We have stinging nettles which grow wild next to ferns. And we have mint, which I think is considered spring.

the closest I can think of is the tender baby pumpkin/squash used for making 'ollan' (this is a divine dish from kerala made with coconut milk!) Looking forward to the genuine recipe from you Pauljoseph!

I made a puréed butternut squash soup with coconut milk recently. Any relation?

I seem to forget what they're called but they're the little green baseball sized & shaped squashes.
you use them skin & all. Cut up the vegetable into thick quartered slices , boil with some regular milk and pre cooked black eyed peas to cook & soften them with one slit green chilli (which can be discarded once the flavor transfers to the milk) , before adding the coconut milk.The defining ingredient in this dish is the freshly torn curry leaves & finishing with EV coconut oil. Pauljoseph would have an authentic recipe..

good god Pauljoseph, just setting eyes on those old favorites, elavan, maththan, koorkai (these are the native names for winter squash, pumpkin, and a variety of teensy weensy tubers (not taro) which have a very earthy flavor)..... rakes up homesickness!!..
Also spotted mullangi (radish/daikon..) a Sambhar would be fab!
