I miss eating so many native vegetables of India and Murungai keerai (drumstick leaves) is one of them. I was so happy to get hold of fresh drumstick leaves here in Melbourne. This keerai kozhambu is one of my favourite curry to have with steamed rice.
It is super healthy and rich in nutrition. If you are low on Iron, this is usually the recommended vegetable. It is rich in protein, vitamins and calcium.
