Drumstick Leaves Stir-fry / Murungai Keerai Kootu

Drumstick leaves are rich in iron and have many health benefits. Drumstick Leaves Stir-fry / Murungai Keerai Kootu is a healthy dish that can be made in minimal time. I make it a point to cook this dish at home at least once a week.  It tastes really good along with Sambar or Kara Kuzhambu.
