Drumstick Flesh Masala


HI Everyone,

Iam so happy to show you my most favourite recipe which was always prepared by my Granny.
All grandmoms have a unique and a wonderful way of preparing food. When we try to reciprocate them, it ends in atmost failure. I too tried to do the same of what my Granny does.. yet the taste was different from what had prepared and What I prepared today. Yet the method is the same.

drumstick - 10 - 12
small onions - 1 cup (finely chopped)
tomatoes - 2 (finely chopped)
green chillies - 2 (finely chopped)
salt to taste
red chilli powder - 1 tsp
thick tamarind paste - 1 tsp
corriander powder - 1 tsp
ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
oil - 4 tsp
mustard seeds - 1 tsp
urad dal - 1 tsp
curry leaves - 10 - 12
corriander leaves - 2 tsp (finely chopped)
turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp

- cut the drumsticks to 2" pieces
- wash and cook them in a pressure pan for 3 whistles by adding a pinch of salt and turmeric
- when they are completely cooked, drain the water and leave it aside
- now using a spoon remove the flesh and the seeds from the drumstick and keep it aside
- and throw away the out layer (skin) of the drumstick
- in a pan add oil
- when the oil is hot add mustard seeds and urad dal
- when they change colour add the onions and green chillies and fry till they become transparent
- now add the tomatoes and fry
- when the become smashy add the ginger garlic paste
- add salt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder and the corriander powder
- mix well
- now add the curry leaves and the tamarind paste
- mix well and add the drained water
- allow that to thicken
- when the mixture thickens add the drumstick flesh and corriander leaves
- mix well
- when the recipe becomes thick and forms a paste kind of mixture, serve

Goes well with chappathi/dosa or rice as a side dish
