Shobanjana - Moringa oleifera - drumstick leaves

Milk Jaggery, Murangai Keerai Chappathi, Moong Dal fry
Sigru/Shobanjana, Coconut, Tomatoes

Menu (anticlockwise)
Sweet mangoes
Moong dal payasam
Murangai Keerai Sambhar
Murangai Keerai rasam
Murungai Keerai Poriyal
Murungai Keerai Vadai

Am overwhelmed with murungai keerai, no matter how healthy it is. Would consider touching them, only the day I leave home on Thursday. One thing, mom always tell me is that, whatever you serve, serve it with a sprinkling of love. Prasanna atma, indriya manah - as per Sushruta.

There was no idly mavu, rava, nor dal soaked for adai, so ended up with murangai keerai rotis for breakfast. Yes'day carpenter uncle who lives in our home came, dumping loads of apples, drumstick leaves, curry leaves. I have used only 1/3 of the drumstick leaves he plucked from our garden. He comes home very rarely. He is the very picture of unctuous Uriah Heepish uncles who call me madam or chinnamma.
