Drumstick Leaves Poriyal

Posted by devagi

Drumstick leaves aka π‘΄π’–π’“π’–π’π’ˆπ’‚π’Š π’Œπ’†π’†π’“π’‚π’Š in Tamil is one great superfood the whole world is paying attention to now.  Plucking the drumstick leaves can be a long and tedious job for many but I have always found it to be a worthwhile thing to do when I think of all the nutrients and benefits, I will get out of consuming these leaves at least twice a week.  After plucking the leaves, I usually soak them in a solution of salt and water for about 10 minutes just so that the pesticides and dust can be washed away.  Get the family involved in plucking the leaves………..great family bonding activity!
