Yup...over here we are having the Moringa plant craze. Said to be the superfood bla bla bla...(Go google dot com and find out la). Anyway.... do be cautious. All super food , eat in moderation.
The above are seed pods of the moringa plant and also well know here as "drumsticks". It can be use for cooking and the seeds can be eaten. Price for 100gm of the seeds in the market now cost around RM20-RM30 depending on area. Nowadays, you can see many uncles and aunties munching these while watching TV.
Anyway, these drumsticks is not new to Papa. Ah Mah used to cook this when he was a kid. Papa have been missing it for some time.
Last week, Mamarazzi saw it being sold at the night market for RM8/kg. Bought some. But...how to cook ar? No idea ....Papa said cook "Sambar" and suggested to look for it at Nava's blog. Indeed found a simple recipe at Nava's blog (http://www.nava-k.com/2012/05/murungakka-drumstick-sambar-lentil-stew.html).
The mango trees at the playground opposite our house also fruiting.
Saw in Facebook someone in the gardening group making Mango Chutney. Mamarazzi plucked some of the mango and decided to make Mango Chutney. Missed the Mango Chutney from Devi's.
Found another simple recipe from Nava's blog (http://www.nava-k.com/2012/12/mango-chutney.html). Love the recipe as the ingredients are simple and instruction simple to follow .
Hmmm..... since got two indian dishes...mamarazzi thinks...oh well...might as well have Banana Leaf rice at home.
Went out to the garden and cut some banana leaves. Cooked a few dishes.....and jeng jeng!!!!
Ah...this I like. Fried chicken.
