Murungai Keerai Thanni Saaru Recipe/Drumstick Leaves Cooked with Coconut Milk/Murungai Keerai Thengai Paal Saaru

Murungai Keerai thanni is one of my favorite recipes that my mom makes very often. It is usually very difficult to make kids eat the greens, but when we make this keerai thanni and give, they will just love it.  I love the fresh murungai keerai/drumstick leaves which we get in our backyard [organic],  cook it with kazhani thanni [rice washed water] along with onions, green chilles and the final touch of adding coconut milk is just amazing. We usually make this for lunch and serve with steam cooked white rice.

In my earlier post I have shared about the health benefits of Murungai Keerai, I would love to mention it here as well. Drumstick leaves have wonderful medicinal properties. They have essential amino acids for the healthy functioning of our body. Regular consumption of drumstick leaves is highly recommended for anemic people. They are rich sources of antioxidants, proteins, potassium, vitamin A, C, B3, B2, iron and magnesium. They help in maintaining the blood sugar levels. Keeping all the health benefits in mind do try out the Murungai Keerai Thanni and post your feedback here.
