Homemade Organic Moringa Powder

Here's one of the organic products that I make at home from our Moringa (or Drumstick) tree. The tree, organically grown, has been with us from generations, and several people have taken cuttings of this tree, and grown healthy trees. 

I pluck a lot of leaves, dry them in shade, and then in Sun/heat to remove all moisture, and then powder the leaves. The result is beautiful Green healthy powder! I also make chutney powder from Moringa leaves. I add a spoonful of powder or handful of leaves in sambar or chapati dough. From the leaves, I prepare a dry curry with dal and freshly grated coconut.

I have been observing the MRP of Organic Moringa Powder that's available in the market; at present, one gram of this powder may cost anywhere between Rs. 1.25 to Rs. 2. Growing the plant at home, especially when the plant is low maintenance and can grow in big containers as well, ) is cheaper (on the longer run) than buying the product.
