Murunkaikeerai Kootu1Drumstick leaves, My Most favourite spinach.. love the bitterness taste in it.. Such an healthy leaves, Iheard from my neighbour she used to prepare the same but not in the south indian spices, she use her normal North indian Subji masala..

 After trying this recipe i don’t want to go back with Poriyal, fabulous taste, which rolls in your mouth for a very long time, no one will taste this leaves better than in this way.. if you are a big fan of these levels, then you won’t go back to do poriyal or curry with this leaves, you will start craving for the same preparation.. such and elegant taste i crossed in this dish, Not to tempt you, that’s the truth you will agree after tasting this preparation.. okay here you go with this simple yet great dish.. This goes Perfect with Roti, Sambar sadham too.. See you guys in my next Post, Take care..

    • Adding crushed garlic instead of chopped garlic will enhance more flavour
    • you don’t have sambar masala, then you can use some chilli powder and Coriander Powder to the taste..
