Moringa Pod and Sweet Potato Stew

moringa pod

The moringa tree is native to South Asia. It produces green leaves that you can almost add to any dish. The moringa leaves can be eaten fresh, dried, and even grocery stores sell powdered moringa leaves. The tree also produces “drumstick” pods and seeds that can be eaten like peas, which is what we did in this dish.

With moringa, parents can supplement their child’s diet to enhance overall health and nutritional well-being. Even nursing mothers can benefit from this recipe because moringa is used to increased breast milk production. People who practice India’s ancient form of medicine, Ayurveda, believe that the moringa tree can prevent 300 kinds of illnesses.
