Murungai Keerai Adai | Drumstick Leaves Dosai

Murungai Keerai Dosai

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. Murungai Keerai Dosai

  1. Nice & Simple My husband loves Adai and I make it the usual way, that is, with a mix of various lentils. Now, will surely give this a try. But the same problem, of procuring these leaves. Can we substitute it with other leaves like spinach or fenugreek? j

  2. I have never used drumstick leaves in my cooking , though we use the drumsticks and even the flowers , but leaves never ! Let me put an effort to source them and try using them . The breakfast is awesome , and Adai looks so nutritious .

  3. Healthy adai with drumstick leaves. I agree, sometimes we keep skipping some easy recipes and wonder later why we didn’t do it… I have quite a few like that. 🙂

  4. I have seen drumstick leaves in the local Indian stores but had no recipes to work with. Next time I see them I will but them try dosas. These look so good!

  5. I also love drumstick leaves in adai. Very healthy and nutritious adai.. perfect to make kids eat them.. your photo is so much tempting for me. Adding tamarind looks different to me.
