According to the Trees for Life organization, “ounce-for-ounce, Moringa leaves contain more Vitamin A than carrots, more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach, more Vitamin C than oranges, and more potassium than bananas,” and that the protein quality of Moringa leaves rivals that of milk and eggs.
Because of the high calcium, iron, and vitamins, drumstick leaves can be used as a wonderful tonic for infant and growing kids and teens to promote strong and healthy bones and for purifying the bloodstream. To prepare the tonic, drumstick leaves should be ground with water, filtered, and mixed with milk.
Drumstick-leaf juice is also very beneficial for pregnant women as it can help them overcome sluggishness of the uterus, ease delivery, and reduce post-delivery complications. In India, drumstick leaves are boiled in water and salt, the water is drained, and the leaves are served with ghee (clarified butter) to lactating mothers to increase breast milk.
Drumstick leaves are very useful in treating wheezing, asthma, bronchitis, and tuberculosis. A soup prepared by boiling a handful of leaves in 3/4 cup water for 5 minutes and cooled is served to those with respiratory problems. A little salt, pepper, and lime juice can be added to this soup.
Drumstick has antibacterial properties and as such is very useful in preventing infections such as those of the throat, chest, and skin. Drumstick soup can be prepared from the leaves, flowers, and pods and used for this purpose as an antibiotic. Dried and powdered bark of the drumstick root can also be used for fungal skin infections.
Drum stick leaves – 1 cup (remove the leaves and wash it twice)

Red chilly – 3 nos

Heat the kadai and pour the oil once heat add the mustard once cracked ! add the onion ,garlic and red chilly saute till it turns semi brown . Then add the drum stick leaves ! saute for a minute and close the lid !
Check after ten minutes , it starts to shrink ! saute again well and add the turmeric powder ,adjust salt and pour the 1tbsp of oil , mix well and close the lid , check after 10 minutes ! by this time it cooked if not take other 5 minutes !
Before off the flame add the shredded coconut and mix well !
- Initially the leaves wont mix with the ingredients ! only when it shrinks it w’ll mix well ! so closing the lid w’ll help u shrink as quick !
- We didn’t add any spicy powder specifically as the red chilly itself is enough for this curry !
- If at all u need spiciness add the red chilly powder in the onion ! it makes the taste better not in the leaves !
