I came across a lovely recipe from http://abowlofcurry.blogspot.com/2013/09/muringayila-parippu-curry-daal-and.html and as you all know I will try any thing once 😉
And thus I began my hunt for the Moringa tree also known as the drum stick tree, horseradish tree or ben oil tree ?
The leaves look very similar to my Curry Plants but reading the recipe it used both Moringa leaves and curry leaves.
The curry plant has a slight point on the end of the leaves and are only babies…I am nuturing them tenderly.
Whereas the Moringa has rounded leaves. I have two trees in my garden which are very similar.
I have not been here long enough to see what the seed pods are like.. however another one on my estate is bearing small purplish berries and my grandson said a lady was picking the leaves?
Can anyone shed any light on this?????? Oh and the ” Luffa” is still growing at an amazing speed….just saying 🙂
This tree is much larger but leaves are very similar to first and it just could be the same tree just at different stages of growth.
So I am calling on any Moringa tree experts/gardeners to solve my conundrum and then I can either cook my curry or carry on my search for the Moringa Tree……
