About this Recipe

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 .. Today is such a recipe which my Mom learnt from her old aunt. But i feel how good i may cook , the same dish prepared by my Mom always tastes better. :) I guess we all feel the same way .Isn't it? Today the dish is about "Moringa Leaves" ,local produce which is found through out the year. We cook the Moringa flowers too . This dish is very healthy and diabetic friendly.
