Munagakaya is a yummy and juicy vegetable without which any sambar is incomplete. It is one of my favourite vegetables and I remember fighting with my sister for drumsticks in sambar.

It is not just a vegetable that you add to your sambar to make it more tasty or colourful. It is a powerhouse of nutrients too.

Drumstick – The Powerhouse of Minerals:

Moringa is treated as a ‘super plant’. Drumstick (Moringa) is high in vitamin C and is also a good source of dietary fibre, calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and manganese.

It contains good amounts of vital B-complex vitamins like folates, vitamin-B6 (pyridoxine), thiamine (vitamin B-1), riboflavin, pantothenic acid, niacin and oleic acid.
