Murungai Keerai / Drumstick Leaves is known for its health benefits and is specially recommended to expectant and nursing mothers.My maid brings this drumstick leaves whenever she gets in bulk from her neighbourhood and it is so fresh than those we get in markets.It is always better to cook up greens fresh to enjoy the full benefits and this greens in specific is to be cooked and consumed fresh to avoid bitterness.Amma always had trouble feeding me greens from my childhood days but now having grown up ;) I try to include greens somehow in my diet. Lately I have started liking this murungai keerai when made as poriyal with moong dal so thought to share this recipe from amma - a simple stir fry.
