How to Use Moringa Leaves

Moringa Leaves can be eaten fresh, cooked, or stored as dried powder for many months without refrigeration. While stored ,they won’t loose their nutrition value. Moringa Flowers are also edible. You can check this fritters recipe that I have shared before.

Moringa leaves contain more Vitamin A than carrots, more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach, more Vitamin C than oranges, and more potassium than bananas .This a perfect to fall in the category of Super-Food.

You can also try another recipe that in this blog ,Moringa with Mung. For that I won  Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Contest too.

Recipe is adapted from “First Food Culture of Taste” book. I received this book a 2 month ago from centre for Science and Environment .This book has every essence about healthy good food ,those food which our grand parents been eating .The food which are freshly made from local produce ,delicious in every aspect. This book talks about the critical food-nutrition-nature-culture connection.

There are many beautiful articles by Sangeeta Khana who is always an inspiration to me and a good friend of mine. The first article I read in this book was “Naturally Sweet” by her. It’s all about Shakarkand ,that is naturally sweet and treated to be the dessert of the winter till three-four decades ago..

Chitra Balasubramaniam has written a beautiful article about Moringa super leaves.She has revealed her childhood memories eating curries and sambar using moringa leaves  prepared by her mother. She has also mentioned that Moringa leaves are also being used in pizza ,omletes etc.  I have tried omelet few times !!
