Drumstick Leaves Soup | Murungai Keerai Soup | Moringa leaves soup

Moringa/Drumstick  leaves soup with step by step picture and video.

The climate in my part of the world is slowly changing and we are into our rainy season of the year.As the temperature changes, we  face health issues like cold and cough.To overcome this and keep us comfortable we feel to have something hot and soupy.When I had a bunch of these super power leaves, drumstick leaves I made this soup for a day when all at home had running nose and cold which made us little better.

This soup is so easy to make just add in all ingredients to the cooker and pressure cook it.Then mash it up, strain and have it.Sounds easy right ,let's go straight to the recipe.
