This Moringa Leaves Sitr-Fry is one of my favourite Odia dish. With minimal spices , this dish tastes amazingly delicious.
Family recipes passed down from generation to generation are real treasures for me.And I still enjoy that old method of writing recipes ,tips shared by Mom on my notebook.
The joy was same when my Mom gave her old note book 2 year back. Many unsung recipes are there ,Moringa with Mung is one of them.
Though I learnt from her ,still I have that feeling that she makes it best.
Moringa leaves Stir-Fry Recipe
Today the dish is about Moringa Leaves ,local produce which is found through out the year. This Stir-Fry is best to pair with steamed rice as a side dish.
We cook the Moringa flowers too . This dish is very healthy and diabetic friendly with goodness of this superfood.
Its best to use fresh coconut in this Recipe . You can use frozen grated coconut which is available in the super market.Bring it go room temperature before using in the recipe.
I know grating coconut is a task !
Do not used Coconut paste here. If you want to skip the Coconut, you can .
Adding Garlic is a must. I love Garlic flavour a lot. Adding to any Saag (Edible Green Leaves ) preparation is a must at my place .
You can use Mustard oil or any vegetable oil to prepare this Moringa Leaves Stir-Fry . Do not use Olive or Ghee .
The use of Sugar is a must. That’s my Mom’s cooking trick. Moringa leaves are slightly bitter in most of the case. So to balance that we are adding the sugar .
Tender leaves are a prize possession.But it’s not always possible. So try to mix both tender ( light green ) and the dark green leaves which are more matured !
Saga-Muga dish is also best to pair with Pakhala . Pakhala is a fermented cooked rice which is a traditional Summer Food in Odisha.
