Drumstick Leaves Stir Fry / Murunga Keerai Poriyal

I think this recipe is more familiar to people from Kerala or Tamil Nadu. Drumstick leaves are a rich source for potassium, iron and proteins. It is a natural ailment for diarrhea and heart diseases. This was my grandmother’s home made remedy for the first signs of diarrhea to anyone at the house. And this recipe would taste great especially when made by her in the earthen pots with the fresh drumstick leaves and the even more freshly grated coconut. I liked the post by karthi kannan of making a stir fry of these leaves, because he also inspires us to grow the leaves in-spite of the extreme climate in Pennsylvania. Again the only alteration I made was not to boil the leaves separately since I did not want to loose any of the nutrients. Instead added the water after seasoning and allowed it to cook in the pan. Enjoy the drumstick leaves curry with rice.
