    1. Thanks Archana. I am glad that you have easy access to moringa leaves. Lucky you. Some more recipes coming up soon.

  2. The moringa leaves must have given the paratha a delicious flavour. I love discovering new and interesting paratha flavours like this one.

    1. Yes Nayna and added nutritional value too. Thanks

  3. I think I've seen frozen moringa leaves at the Indian supermarket. Although moringa has become popular here in the west, it is mostly in the form of tea, so fresh is not easy to come by. However, I will check next time I go to the Indian market and would love to try these. Love the bright color of the parathas.

    1. Do try if you find some moringa greens. Hope some Indian grocery store might have them
