Drumstick leaves arachuvitta kuzhambu (curry) is a traditional dish made by blending the masala fresh thereby making it so flavourful. Drumstick leaves are rich in iron and very healthy for all age groups. Whenever I go for grocery shopping, would search for drumstick leaves first then goes my eyes to rest of the veggies. With a single bunch of drumstick leaves, I could plan for the whole week so numerous dishes can be made using it. Whenever I had cold and cough my mom used to make this kuzhambu and it is so comforting one. This kuzhambu requires no tempering. So simple dish and healthiest one too. Aroma of coconut oil enriches the flavour and it tastes better than any other oil. Do try it for your family and stay healthy as always !
