Leaf: 3 x 2.5 cm
Flower: white; 5-6 cm across
This is Mastodi [Capparis sepiaria].
… have not seen such large white ¿ petal ? structure in Capparis sepiaria … though the leaves look similar.
Yes this does not look like C. sepiaria as the flower are much larger.
Thank you for your comments. Sending you one of my photogrpahs of Capparis sepiaria [Mastodi] for comparison.
… as per my belief, Capparis sepiaria [Mastodi].jpg is not Capparis sepiaria … have not seen this yet.
This photograph was taken at the start of the Tulsi road in the Borivali N.P.
the plant posted by you looks like C. zeylanica.
Agreeing with …, this Capparis sepiaria [Mastodi].jpg almost looks like C. zeylanica (which of course you are well aware of).

Capparis mooni Leaf description tells: leaves are upto 9cms.
