In simple words a plant absorbs sunlight through their leaves.

The leaf cells (mainly palisade cells in the palisade layer in the mesophyll layer) contain organelles called chloroplasts which have a pigment called chlorophyll. That chlorophyll absorbs light energy from the sun and convert it into chemical energy.
