Murunga Poo Poriyal| Moringa Flowers Stir-Fry

Did you know that the blossoms of the moringa tree are edible? Not just edible, moringa flowers (called ‘murunga poo’ in Tamil) are chock-full of health benefits, just like the pods and leaves of the tree are! It is not for nothing that the moringa is called a ‘miracle tree’ and that its pods, leaves and flowers are touted as ‘super foods’ the world over!

I got the opportunity to try out moringa flowers very recently, for the first-ever time. They got used in a traditional Tamilnadu-style Murunga Poo Poriyal, which I learnt from Amma. The poriyal, an extremely delicious affair, was much loved by everyone at home. It was such a breeze to make, and paired beautifully with the sambar rice I served it with.

Check out the recipe, just in on my photo blog!
