Drumstick leaves fried with Eggs (weekend herb)
Drumstick leaves (Botanical name - Moringa Oleifera)
Drumstick leaves are antibacterial and are wonderful cleaners. They are used in the cure of many ailments due to their various medicinal properties. It helps to cure hiccups, urine troubles, worm troubles, boils, abscess, piles, etc.
Drumstick leaves contain 7 times the vitamin C in oranges plus 4 times the calcium in milk plus 4 times the vitamin A in carrots plus 2 times the protein in milk plus 3 times the potassium in bananas. Did you know about this? Unfortunately, I personally do not think this vital information has reached the people who need it most.
I am quite thrilled and inspired by the theme of weekend herb blogging at Kalyn's kitchen. I am starting off with one of our favorite side dish recipes we devour which is made of drumstick leaves and eggs. Your feedbacks on this please.

Drumstick leaves – 2-3 handsful, picked off one by one from the stems and stalks (need lots of patience), washed
Onions – 3, medium size, finely chopped
Green chillies – 8, medium size and medium hot, finely chopped
Oil – 2 teaspoons
Ghee – 2 teaspoons
Salt – ½+½ teaspoon
Turmeric powder – ¼ teaspoon
Heat a frying pan, pour in the oil and ghee. When very hot, add the onions and green chillies together and fry till they turn limp. Add the drumstick leaves. Sprinkle a handful of water and ½ teaspoon salt over the drumstick leaves, cover with a lid, and let the drumstick leaves boil for 5 minutes over moderate heat. Meanwhile, beat up the eggs with the turmeric powder and ½ teaspoon salt. Remove the covering lid over the drumstick leaves and fry turning over frequently. When dryish and no water runs out, pour the egg batter slowly all over the drumstick leaves, stirring with a spatula to distribute the egg batter evenly. When the egg sets into flakes, remove from the fire. Serve hot as soon as it is made for a delicious flavor. Enjoy!
