Family recipes passed down from generation to generation are real treasures for me.And I still enjoy that old method of writing recipes ,tips shared by Mom on my notebook. The joy was same when my Mom gave her old note book 2 year back. Many unsung recipes are there ,Moringa with Mung is one of them.
Though I learnt from her ,still I have that feeling that she makes it best.
Today the dish is about Moringa Leaves ,local produce which is found through out the year.
We cook the Moringa flowers too . This dish is very healthy and diabetic friendly.
"Moringa with Mung"

Add crushed red chili and crushed garlic to it.Saute for a minute.Add Moringa & mung to it.Add salt and cook for 2 minute at medium flame.

It's enjoyed as a side-dish in a Meal.
