Moringa/Shektache Shenga

The health benefits of the Moringa tree haven’t escaped people over centuries. This nutrient-packed multi-purpose tree is native to the Indian subcontinent and has been a part of various Indian cuisines for a very long time. Not only are the leaves edible, but the flowers and even the pods (drumsticks) are widely consumed and loved in India. But that is not all. Since Moringa grows fast, it is a great tree for drought-affected areas. Moreover, the seeds of this magical tree can be used to purify water!
