Murungai Keerai Soup | Drumstick leaves Soup | Moringa leaves Soup

Murungaikeerai soup, drumstick leaves soup

Today I am here with a healthy soup made with Drumstick leaves / Moringa leaves .  Drumstick leaves (or Murungai keerai as we call in Tamil) are packed with nutrients and are very healthy. Back in India,  we have a Drumstick tree in our back yard and my mom makes Stir fry (Poriyal) with Moringa leaves very often and it is my favourite. She also makes Sambar with it. Also when she makes fresh ghee she would add it at the end. It would be nice to mix it with rice and eat. I am always a fan of Moringa leaves but when we were in US it was not available there(the part where we lived) at all. But after moving to UK, it is available here. We get it once in a month. The bunches will be huge.  This week when we got it, after making stirfry, I had some left over drumstick leaves. The weather is still cold here, and also I am suffering from severe cold so wanted to have some warm soup and used these leaves to make soup.  The soup came out good and it was  comforting for the cold.
