Murungaikeerai Paratha/Drumstick leaves Paratha.



Drumstick leaves are a source of iron and i usually pick one bundle  when i visit Indian grocery shops. Reversing back in my childhood we had a Drumstick tree in our house which was notable for  its tasty Drumsticks and in the months of April and May we used to cook only drumsticks . Exchange between neighbors was also there. But never did i touch Drumstick leaves. But after  coming to Singapore when we used to get this rarely all these food cravings happens and now the opposite is always in cycle. i encourage my children to try these. Yesterday instead of the usual curry i thought of incorporating it in Paratha like methi leaves . The taste blended well and children too ate without fuss. Now for the recipe.
