The easiest way to preserve fresh Moringa Leaves is to dry them in the shade and make a fine powder. It’s a recipe which has existed in the Indian kitchens of the past and allows us to use the goodness of the drumstick greens even when the tree is in hibernation.

But we don’t need to stop there. We can make moringa powder a fancy party dish option too. The earthy taste goes remarkably well with ghee , tomatoes, nuts and the red kashmiri mirch and that’s exactly what we did. A yummy dip which can be enjoyed with sourdough toast, dip into with crunchy nachos or with a selection of bright vegetable crudites for a weekend game night with friends.
