Moringa leaves chutney | Murungai keerai thogayal/thuvayal

Murungai keerai thuvayal with step by step pictures.

Murungai/moringa leaves are the healthiest green and are rich in iron. Unlike other greens, many don't prefer this green may be due to the shape. While other greens wilts on sauteeing but his moringa leaves remain as such even after sauteeing. You can include in Adai (savory lentil crepes), soups, poriyals, etc. As my daughter is anemic I have started including it in her diet.

Coming to this recipe it is rich chutney which can be mixed up with hot steaming rice. If you are as a side dish for idli/dosa dilute with some water and use. You can make this with or without coconut. But I personally suggest to make it with coconut.

Let us see how to make this.
