In English it is called Malabar nightshade, Ceylon spinach, or Indian spinach and I don't think it's generally sold in American groceries. I haven't seen it in Chinese stores either but if you want to ask for it the Chinese names are:

Chan cai, Luo kui, Qing chan cai, Mu er cai, Lü luo kui

In Hindi I believe this is the same thing as Poi if you want to ask for it in Indian grocery store.

If you have Thai groceries you might also find it. In Thai it is called Phak ptlang.

Hope you can find it somewhere!

This message is for everybody who said that bacchali kura is spinach.

As you all said in the query that "Bacchala Kura is known as Spinach in English. In Hindi it is Palak". It's wrong. Bacchala kura is not spinach. PAALA KURA IS SPINACH.I don't know the english name for bacchala kura but it's definitely not spinach or palak.
