moringa (drumstick) leaves
crushed dry chillies
Wash and drain the moringa leaves. Get rid of all the thick sprigs. Finely chop the shallots.
Crush the shallots with the flat surface of your knife. Chop them.
Take the moringa leaves, grated coconut, turmeric powder, and salt in a mixing bowl.
Heat the oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds followed by the chopped shallots.
After the shallots are cooked to tender, add crushed chillies and curry leaves (optional, I didn't use them).
Saute for a couple of minutes on a medium flame.
Now add the mixed moringa leaves and combine well.
Cook with the lid closed for 10 minutes. Add salt if required. Stir occasionally.
Open the lid, stir well, and cook for 2 minutes.
Serve hot with some rice and curry.
