Vallarai Keerai is one of the most beneficial medicinal plants. It has lots of health benefits. If we eat this keerai regularly, it will increase memory power and when we cook this we should not add tamarind. If we add tamarind it will nullify the benefits of this keerai. It is also known as Sarawathi Keerai. Those who are pregnant should not use this keerai. This keerai reduces body heat and helps in growth of hair and it reduces hair fall. I have prepared hair oil using this keerai. I learnt making this from my sister who is a Siddha Doctor.
