Murungai keerai Paneer Gravy - Drumstick Leaves Paneer Recipe - Moringa leaves Indian Cottage cheese Gravy - Side dish recipes

I had a bunch of Murungai keerai / Moringa leaves in the fridge. My kids wanted Paneer gravy for dinner to go with Chapathi / roti / Naan. Instead of plain Paneer recipe I wanted to try Moong Paneer But my son wanted it with some green leafy vegetable. I had only Drumstick leaves in the fridge. I told them that's what I am going to try. I was crossing my finger as not sure about the taste (So worried that I decided to do it a little early for dinner so that I can come up with another alternative if it didn't turn up good. And for the first time I made it i didn't even bother to take pics. It came out extremely well After that I did it a few times and a couple of time when I was having some get together with friends. Every time they loved it. So it is a must try recipe
