Has milky latex. Annual climber whose leaves are eaten like arvi leaves: rolled in besan, steamed and fried. Tastes like fish.

Share some more information like Habit and flowers if possible

I tried looking at comparative images at Apocynaceae, but could not find a match.
I think more details are required.

Not able to find any result on the internet with such a name.
The leaf reminds of several genera – Ipomoea, Argyreia, Dioscorea, but I am not confident.

I think maybe some Ipomoea species like Ipomoea aquatica Forssk.

Any views, …, with the habit of the plant ?

I’m waiting for flowers. Then I’ll share an image.


Buds have emerged but no flower yet!

Habit image?

Don’t you have a habit image as you stated it to be having buds?

Comments at eFI site page at Ipomoea Aquatica ?:
Do you have photos of the stem and nodes?
I don’t think it is Ipomea aquatica as Ipomea aquatica does not have hairs on the leaves.
