Drumstick Leaves Stir Fry/MurungakeeraiPoriyal

A very easy recipe using no oil at all, preserving the taste and nutrient content of the drumstick leaves almost in its fullest. This is an age old recipe taught by elders in the family, down the generations and tastes the best with hot rice and dal/sambar.

Make sure to clean the leaves well, leaf by leaf to make sure no worms or pests. A few tender stems along with leaves are no harm, in fact, they add taste and also make it richer, nutrients wise.
