Moringa Drumstick Curry


Moringa Drumstick Curry

What better way to celebrate this Deepavali than to cook up this delicious super food that’s not only tasty but also nutritious.

For this festive occasion, home cook Puja, shares with us her very own Moringa Drumstick Curry.

“A super dish that I will cook for my family at least once a week!” – Puja

When you hear the word “Drumstick”, what’s the thing that first comes to your mind?

That’s right, Chicken thigh! That’s exactly what we thought when we first came across this recipe.

Do you know that Moringa and it’s fruit – also known as Drumstick – is a type of  super food? Don’t be deceived by how it looks. The health benefits that you can get out of this super food will blow you away!

Here’s a list of benefits you can get out of a Drumstick:

#1 Builds strong bones.

#2 Purifies blood. 

#3 Lowers blood sugar levels. 

#4 Eases respiratory problems. 

#5 Good for pregnant women. 

#6 Protects against infections. 

#7 Helps in digestion.

This super food is commonly used in soups and curries. However, Puja has added a twist – by adding Assam, which gives the curry a pleasant sour note that makes it even more tasty and appetizing!

What are you waiting for?

      尝尝邻居的家常美食 在家煮的食物最美味,本地全新应用Share Food让无法在家烹调食物的用户,能尝到邻居的家常美食。 Share Food 是由三人团队开创的本地应用,创办人之一卢佩雯(29岁)说,他们都喜欢源自家中的美味,但现代家庭因工作忙碌,许多人只在周末才在家做菜,周日晚餐大多在外解决,住家周围选择也有限。三人于是开发应用,将“家厨”和寻找家常美食的用户连接起来。用户使用应用搜索住家附近的家厨,浏览他们提供的佳肴,选定购买后,一餐就会递送上门。 卢佩雯认为Share food能让无法全职工作的人多一个收入来源。 Share Food上周刚推出,至今下载次数已突破2000次,有200多名家厨注册,提供中餐、西餐、印度餐、健康餐的多元口味。此外,用户也能在应用中和Share Food博客网站浏览家厨的食谱、餐饮趋势报道和烹饪示范视频。 卢佩雯说,这个应用让用户免费使用,也不向家厨抽取利润,营运模式建立一个蓬勃的美食社群,然后和餐饮品牌合作,推出相关的产品行销内容。 她说:“应用一方面让用户不用亲手下厨,就能够尝到有别于小贩中心和餐馆的家常菜肴;一方面让对烹饪有热忱的人,多一个平台分享美食。这也让无法全职工作的家庭主妇或是退休人士,多一个收入来源。” 许雪玲(46岁,销售行政员)热衷烘焙,每逢周末都会为家人下厨制作蛋糕和各色甜点,接触Share Food后就决定一试,在网上售卖芝士蛋糕和吉蒂猫杯糕,开通四天后接获三个订单。...
