From tree to pot (Moringa !)

The moringa pod used for making “paripu curry”. It’s an Sri Lankan dish.

We are not Sril Lankan but Chinese and making this during Chinese New Year but ok, I think this is close 🙂

The moringa pods are the main ingredients used for this dish.

The tree where it was harvested from:

The tree is also flowering.

In case you don’t know Moringa is a super food. However most of the nutrients are in the leaves. That doesn’t mean the pods is not as nutritious.

Of course cooking it destroys some of the nutrients but in this case it’s the taste we are after 🙂

If you have a good recipe for the moringa pods please share! 🙂
