If you love eating, you can surely be a good cook, but to be an excellent one, you should have good critics at home. For that I owe to my husband and my children.

I dedicate this blog to the young ladies - "the starters".

Moringa-Curry leaves health drink



This is a recipe recommended by my mother.
She drinks quarter glass of this juice every day .
It has helped her to improve her
immunity and has put a control on her cholesterol.
As we have moringa tree in our backyard it is
easy for her to make it fresh everyday.

Moringa leaves are well known for its richness .
Drum sticks are widely used in sambar and curries.
Bark of the moringa tree is used by some people
to make a chutney as an accompaniment for pork curries.
They say it helps to digest the fat in the pork.

Moringa leaves(muringa) -2 hand full
Curry leaves -1 hand full
Chemeen puli leaves - 2 small
Jeera - ½ tsp
Fenugreek (uluva) - ½ tsp
Garlic - 2
Water - ½ glass

Crush all these lightly in a pestle and mortar.
Take a vessel , pour half a glass of water add this
crushed mixture and keep on low flame to boil
for two minutes sieve and squeeze it to a tumbler.

As our age increases and our activity decrease,
we have to watch our diet. Control our carbs,
Sugar, salt, oil and fat. Regular use of vegetables
Fruits , proteins , fresh juice gives a hope for a
better healthy life style . That is the new mantra
of this age.

Wow! This looks great! I've had great results with a drink called FuCoyDon lately, which is made from seaweed from Tonga. Sounds kinda like what you're doing. Maybe I'll have to try your drink, too!
