You might have heard about murungai (moringa) and its benefits. It’s something people in Asia have been eating for generations, but only recently people in the west “recognized” it as a superfood. Not only the tree’s leaves, but also the sticks and bark are useful, and have been used in food and for medication, mainly in Siddha Maruthuvam, for ages. The word muringa is actually derived from the tamil name murungai and the malayali name muringa.
We use the sticks very much, and it’s easy to buy them in the local tamil stores, but the leaves are not always imported. Whenever we are able to buy them, we do, because we love them and of course of the benefits.
This recipe is from thebigmansworld.com, but I just halved the ingredients and added vanilla 😉
If you want a glutenfree, sugarfree, yet a tasty and a very simple recipe, go for it. Both my brother and I love it! 😀
I make this quinoa bowl often, it is easy, healthy, PCOS-friendly and antiinflammatoric. And of course vegan too 🙂
Quinoa is low in calories, but high in proteins. Moreover it contains all 9 essential amino acids. By eating it every day, it is said to reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes. As it has a low glycemic index, it is therefore very much PCOS-friendly, and of course also good for controlling the sugar level in blood. It can also help in losing weight.
This is one of the easiest recipes 😉 I only started to love Thai food during my visit to Berlin, where we went to Cha Chã Positive Eating, where we gut the yummiest Thai noodle soup. Then I tried make my own Thai noodle soup sevearal times, and I also bring some for lunch at work 😉
Sodhi is usually eaten with idiyappam (string hoppers) in Ilangai, and I’m actually not sure about what Indians eat with sodhi, but I saw a recipe on Thirunelveli style sodhi in a cooking show with Venkatesh Bath for many years ago, and I think it’s really good with idiyappam.
Thirunelveli is a town in Tamil Nadu, and is very famous for many food items, especially the halwa, from the shop Iruttu Kadai. Other popular food items in Thirunelveli is uluthansoru and uluthankali, and of course sodhi that are particularly eaten in Thirunelveli. Also sodhi and uluthankali are very popular among the tamil people in Ilangai, and I’ve eaten a lot of it.
