We called malunggay

Asian countries like India or philippines. In English, it is sometimes called referred to as horseradish leaf or horseradish plant, although it's a different species from the horseradish that Westerns. The tree grows fast and survives well in drought conditions.  Last week i cook this because i miss to
eat filipino food especially the horseradish leaf wow i  never knew that the name of this green tree is horseradish leaf  because as you can see the root is green and also the leaf. To many filipino missed this type of stuffs. In order for you to buy this you have to go to the asian store or nearby store, and you can find it.




My breakfast. Malunggay with fish. super yummy. To all who didin't knew this. don't eat. LOL.

Malunggay leaves are popularly used in Filipino soups and broths especially tinola. The leaves are said to increase lactation in nursing mothers. Filipinos like to say that malunggay is the most nutritious plant in the world.” It is rich in vitamins A and C and iron. A study recently found that malunggay increases sperm count in men.

  9. what a coincidence! I have similar previous post. And yes, what better way to use malunggay than to pair it with fresh catch fish in a soup.
