Murungai Keerai Soup Recipe

Here is yet another recipe from my favorite Drumstick leaves. Since my childhood, I never used to say no to the recipes made of drumstick leaves. I just love the drumstick leaves poriyal my mom makes. She is the one who suggested this recipe. In the place where we live, we used to get drumstick leaves very rarely. Whenever it is available, I make sure I buy little excess so that I can make it 2 or 3 times. I was left with handful of drumstick leaves and the only recipe that I could think of is making soup out of it. The soup tasted yummy with a nice flavor of drumstick leaves. It is healthy too Smile
