Moringa Oleifera,considered one of the world’s most useful trees,as almost every part of the Moringa tree can be used for food or has some other beneficial property.It is a good source of calcium and phosphorous.Did you know that Moringa is used as a tropical treatment for minor infections ,and it is a good source of antioxidants,anti-inflammatory,anti-aging compounds and many benefits related to cardiovascular,endocrine,including improved sleep,mental clarity,wound healing,digestion,and many more benefits..

We do consume Moringa as included in Sambar and like dishes.But here is an exclusively-Moringa dish.Very easy to make,great taste and bunch of nutrients in a small serving.(If you think that I am too assertive or over-enthusiastic about nutrients in each recipe,well,its mainly because we have lot of fried items and non-veg in our diet.So I consider it very essential to know “what am I eating today”,beyond the name alone,especially when I have a baby in my home and it is very necessary to include all vitamins and nutrients in her diet.Health is wealth.No money or luxury can replace it.Unless you have good health,not any person or any worldly stuff will come to use.By eating healthy,you are investing in yourself,for a better tomorrow,for yourself and for dear ones around you.Isn’t it so?

 

We’ll need

 

Moringa Pods,5-6

Grated coconut-1 cup

Small onions-4-5 nos

Ginger-very small piece

Garlic-1 small piece

Curry leaves-1 stalk

Green chilly-2-4 nos

 

Clean Moringa pods,and cook adding salt,a pinch of turmeric powder ,salt and a cup of water. Remove from heat when cooked half-way.Coarse grind all the rest of ingredients.Heat oil in a pan and splutter mustard seeds.Add the  coconut mixture,add half-cooked pods along with water remaining in it(this is done to allow the coconut-mixture flavour to enter into the pods).Now check for salt and cook until pods are tender and the dish becomes dry.Keep stirring carefully.Serve hot!!

P.S

  • You can add fennel seeds to the grounded mixture if you prefer.
  • You can avoid garlic,but remember, it helps in digestion.
  • Pods can be cooked by adding them directly into pan after spluttering mustatd seeds and adding coconut-mixture.Take care while adding water as not to break pods and end up in a messy dish.
  • The same recipe is used to cook Moringa leaves.Just cook leaves and mixutre together.No pre-cooking as in case of pods.

  3. First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.

    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
    Appreciate it!
