Drumstick Curry

All these years i have only tried drumstick dhall, drumstick kootu, drumstick vathakozhambu or drumstick sambar. One of my twin is a very big fan of drumstick. She can eat drumstick in any form. But I was kinda bored to make the same stuff with drumstick. So I wanted to try this drumstick curry which one of my friend used to bring for lunch when we were in college. It came out pretty good and as always my little one had fun eating drumstick along with tomato and onion...Here is the recipe.

  1. Drumstick - 1 cup (chop it into 2 inch long)
  2. Tomato - 1 (chop it)
  3. Onion - 1 (chop it)
  4. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  5. Coriander powder - 3/4 tsp
  6. Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp (acc to taste)
  7. salt to taste
  8. Oil - 1 tsp
  9. Mustard seeds - 1/4 ts
  10. cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
  11. coriander leaves - to garnish
  12. Asafoetida/hing - a pinch
Preheat oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds, cumin seeds and asafoetida powder, till it becomes golden brown. Now add the chopped onion and saute till it becomes transparent. Now add the chopped tomato along with chopped drumstick. Saute for couple of minutes. Add required amount of water, add turmeric powder and salt and let it cook for 5 to 7 mts till the drumstick is almost done. Now add the coriander and chilli powder to the mixture and saute for few more minutes. Sprinkle a handful of water if necessary. Turn off the stove when you get the required consistency. I wanted a little bit watery consistency curry. So I added little bit extra water. Adjust water according to the required consistency. Garnish it with coriander leaves.
