Recipe: Kerala-Style Moringa Leaves Stir-Fry

February 28, 2022 12:54 IST

Murungai Keerai Thoran is a traditional Kerala-style moringa or drumstick leaves stir-fry.

Bethica Das sautes it in coconut oil, and adds plenty of fresh coconut, to provide an authentic touch and flavour.

This yummy and healthy side dish is sometimes served as one of the items in a sadya or festive feast, even an Onam sadya.

You can also relish it with either curd rice or sambar, dal chawal or chapattis.
