Murungai Keerai Recipes | Drumstick Leaves | Moringa Leaves Pakoda Recipe:

Murungai Keerai Pakoda is a very easy Pakoda recipe that can be made very quickly. Drumstick leaves are called as Moringa Leaves in Hindi and Murungai Keerai in Tamil. Instead of making simple Pakoda, you can increase the nutritional value by adding Drumstick leaves. Drumstick leaves are well known for strengthening the immunity power.

Murungai Keerai is widely used for treating Anemia in Tamil Nadu. It is good for diabetes too. Murungai Keerai leaves are often ignored. If your kids do not like the taste of it to eat as a Murungai Keerai Poriyal, try adding it to the yummy Pakoda.

I am adding this to my Healthy School snacks recipes collection. Please note that try to keep a limit of deep fried items you are adding to the diet. Weekly once might not be a problem.
