Morenga is a tree that the "drumsticks" grow on. It is considered a miracle tree and has been planted as food source across Africa - central america - philipines, indo full of vitamins and amino acids -a meat substitute

Drumstick is available at a few Farmer's Markets here in Kali, but frozen is suitable and available at Indian markets. You could sub with okra-not the same, but it works OK. Morenga is a woody pod. You eat the inside as to us the outside is so fiberous.
