Muringakka / Drumsticks Curry

Posted by Picasa
Muringakka/ drumsticks seven
Onion one
Tomato one
Green chilly two
Curry leaves few
Turmeric powder half tea spoon
Chilly powder half tea spoon
Coconut milk one cup thick
For seasoning
Coconut oil
Mustard seeds half tea spoon
Red chilly one cut into three pieces

How to prepare
Cut and peel drumsticks , wash it.
Cook the chopped onion, tomato with salt and all powders and enough water to cover it.
Cook till the onion is done.
Add green chilly slit and drum stick pieces.
Mix and let it cook.
When the drumstick pieces are done add coconut milk.
When it begins to boil switch off fire.
Heat oil in another pan, add mustard seeds.
Let it splutter.
Add curry leaves, red chilly pieces.
Stir and pour into the curry.
You can cook ash gourd, cucumber and other veggies like this.
Since drum sticks need less cooking time, don’t add it in the beginning.
But for other vegetables you can add in the beginning.
This is a very tasty curry. You can add more chilies if needed.Usually I prepare less spicy dishes.
