Just the leaves. I think you’ve already been told in another thread that carrot is not a good food.

Thanks ,.ya..I'm . trying to give other choice of food

No worries.

I was looking over an older thread of possible foods in your area and noticed that link wasn’t working. Here are some possibilities that may be available where you are. Ignore if you have already seen!

Methi (fenugreek)
Cilantro (coriander)
Gongura (sour leaf)
Grape leaves
Turnip leaves
Any kind of squash, melon, or cucumber leaves and stems (not the fruit)
Any kind of cactus
Hibiscus leaves and flowers
Any kind of mallow leaf (okra; jute)
Water spinach (this has many names)
Shahi or any cress
Rocket
Sweet potato leaves and stems (might be called yam)
Occasionally the leaves and leaves of broad beans or other beans

If you can tell us what other kinds of stores or stalls you have access to we can give more help. I’ve only ever been in Bangalore briefly and don’t think I ever saw foods that were available in the city or nearby.
