Moringa/Sahijana/Murungai or Drumstick Tree are some of the names it’s known by. All parts of the plant are used, including flowers, fruit, roots, bark, seeds and leaves.  The moringa leaves retain the vitamins and minerals when dried and are extensively used in India and Africa in feeding programs to fight malnutrition.
