Drumstick leaves with eggs

I still remember the days when my brothers and me were very fussy about eating greens (Cheera). We had exhausted all the excuses we could use on the world to avoid eating them, until my mother came up with this recipe of Muringya Cheera with mutta, with a magic touch of hers. From then, we prefer to eat most of the cheera variety with eggs.

Drumstick leaves has various medicinal properties and are cure to many ailments. They are rich in Vitamin A & C, Protiens and Calcium. Consumption of drumstick leaves increase your heamoglobin count and is good for anemic patients.

  • 2 finely chopped Onions
