Murungai Keerai Adai or Drumstick Leaves Dosai is a quick, instant breakfast dish you can make and since it has Drumstick leaves, it surely makes a healthy breakfast dish.
While we have been wanting to make this for a long time, only recently we ended up making it and since making it, we have been repeating it often. We wondered why we took so long to make it. One of the main constraints is the accessibility of the Drumstick leaves. Its not mostly sold in grocery shop and you will have source it through directly from tress close by.
So even though we have access to the trees, getting them sourced is still a huge task. We mostly make Munagaku Vepudu (Drumstick Leaves Stir Fry) with it and since we have been wanting to make this Adai, we finally decided to make it. It surely made a delicious dish. It only takes about 2 plus few minutes to get this done.
We are starting a new edition BM#98, week 1, where I will be sharing a dish for each meal of the day. Today’s dish is a popular breakfast dish from Tamil Nadu.
