Our grandmothers knew the health benefits of Moringa (the humble Muringai, in the form of kai or keerai). It is no wonder that recently it has climbed high on the ranks of wonder plants listed by the Western experts.
Here the muringakkai seems to be twice blessed by being sold by an ‘ayyappa swamy’. He says the moringa comes every day from Tirunelveli to the old Kothwal chavadi (Malaya Perumal street) to be sold to retailers.
