This is a dumpling served at breakfast or as a snack .These type of kolukattai or dumplings
famous in the South Asian cuisine,can be made savoury and sweet too.Most kids love the
sweet dumplings.This recipe i’m going to share is, a very healthy one.I would like to share
a few notes on this miracle leaf.
Moringa or the Murungai keerai(tamil) is rich in antioxidants,Omega 3 fatty acids,and has
high alkalizing and purifying benefits.Moringa helps maintain skin,hair,eyes ,and overall
health.Moringa has 3 times iron of spinach .Including this in your diet will positively bring
changes you could clearly feel and see.You can include in soups,curries,chappathis , or a
side dish for rice.Will be posting more on this later.
For the recipe now

1.5 cup water
1/2 cup moringa leaves
