Mudakathaan Keerai/Indravalli/Balloon vine leaves are commonly used in Tamil Nadu for treating joint pain. The name 'Mudakku Aruthan' suggests that it helps in relieving the arthritis problem to a great extent. Many dishes like kuzhambu, rasam and concoction can be prepared with these leaves other than dosa. Using them along with millets is an excellent way to include them in our diet. We had this creeper in our home and my grandma and amma used to make dosas very often with these leaves.
