This is a perfect remedy for mouth ulcer. Manathakkali keerai or Black nightshade has lot of medicinal properties, but what I know is its a wonderful home remedy for mouth ulcer and of-course ulcer. As a kid, I used to love the looks of the berries, it looked as if they are the berries that are described in the English stories I used to read as a kid. Somehow, no idea why!! May be I had no idea about berries those days and imagined these so! Only these are too tiny and cute. The leaves are also chewed raw if the mouth ulcer is too big and painful to get immediate relief. I have not done so, but have seen few people who had done it and got relieved. Basically this thanni saaru has coconut milk and jeera too in addition to this keerai to cure your mouth ulcer. I already have Agathi keerai Thanni saaru posted few years back. Yes, we make thanni saaru when ever possible for its goodness!
You can drink this as such and eat the leaves. My hubby also mixes with rice and eat. But it will be very very mild.
