Chow down Moringa 

Subba Rao 

“I love drumstick curry,” Juggernaut opened his lunch box. 

“I thought you like chicken breast,” Dan was trying to look 

into Juggernaut's lunch box. 

“Who said bout chicken?” 

“Well, you said drumsticks.” 

“You see, how vegetables getting bad rap again; drumsticks for 

vegetarians mean tender Moringa pods not chicken legs,” Juggernaut 

started chewing tender pieces of curried Moringa pods like a cow 

ruminates at leisure.” 

“I never heard a vegetable with name Moringa or drumstick.” 

“Well, Moringa a common backyard tree, its flowers and leaves 

are cooked in a variety of ways from soups to stir-fries.  The long 

pods with seeds harvested when green and tender are the main edible 

product of Moringa tree, since the pods are one to two feet long, they 

go with name Drumsticks. The tender pods enclosing immature seeds with 

characteristic strong Moringa flavor are soft to chew after cooking, 

the seeds with soft pulp around were loaded with minerals more than in 

a glass of cow's milk.” juggernaut continue to chew the pods. 

“Well, certainly eating Moringa pods or Drumsticks is work cut 

out like eating lobster, crab or crawfish,” Dan gave a strange look at 

Juggernaut as he continued to chew the pods and placing the well chewed 

up pods on a paper plate neatly. The discarded chewed up thick pods 

looked more like well chewed straw from mouth of a cow. 

“Whether it is stewed or curried, Moringa is a delicacy, no 

other vegetable can match; I hope it is more often called Moringa 

rather than drumsticks,” Juggernaut gave a rest to his jaws done 

chewing the pods at length.
