Murungakeerai Poriyal Recipe
Drumstick leaves/ Murungakeerai are one of the most prettiest green varieties that are loaded with health benefits. I love any kind of greens and murungakeerai is no exception. For some reason its so hard to find drumstick leaves in my local market. So this time when I went home, Amma made this simple delicious drumstick leaves stir fry to go with our sambar and rasam. Drumstick leaves poriyal is more chunks with a unique taste and flavour. Its more mild and does not have a strong flavour. I totally love this combo and wanted to share this simple recipe here. Drumstick leaves are used to cure anaemia, thyroid disorder, joint pains, headache, high bp, stomach pain, ulcers, diabetes, diarrhoea and so on.
