Drumstick comes under spinach variety and it has lots of health benefits. In Tamilnadu most of the individual houses will have this tree and from top to bottom of the tree it has various uses. The root,stem,flowers and leaves are raw materials for many medicines.
Cleaning this leaves brings back childhood memories for me.Amma makes it a point to cook elaborate lunch every weekend.There will be keerai/vazhathandu/vazhapoo.It takes time to clean them,so me my brother used to help while watching ‘Chandrakanta’ serial 🙂 🙂 As a reward we used to get extra dose of coffee too 😀 :D.
So coming back to recipe this ‘Murungakeerai Poricha Kuzhambu’ is a very simple gravy with very minimal ingredients.The cleaning takes time but altogether it will be.
