Morniga leaf rice

Morniga leaf rice

I got inspiration for this recipe from the methi (Fenugreek) rice. Though Methi-rice is a mixed rice preparation of North Indian cuisines, I used to prepare it during my Chennai days.  Same like Methi, Moringa leave  (മുരിങ്ങ ഇല)  is a rich source of nutrition especially β – carotene, calcium and iron. I tried here to give a Kerala touch to the recipe with coconut masala, and came out very well as a one dish meal which my family loved a lot.
