Ingredients (240 ml cup used)

  • 2 to 3 drumsticks cut to finger length (try to use tender ones)
  • 1 to 2 potatoes cut to bite size (optional)
  • 1 cup of finely chopped onions
  • 1/3 cup of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 green chili
  • 1 sprig curry leaves
  • pinch of mustard
  • pinch of cumin
  • 2 to 3 crushed garlic cloves (optional, gives a different flavor)
  • 1 tsp red chili power
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp coriander powder (optional, I do not use, without this too the curry tastes good)
  • 2 to 3 tbsps oil
  • water as needed to cook the drumsticks

How to make the recipe

  1. Add oil to a deep pan and heat it, add mustard & cumin. Allow them to splutter, add curry leaves and green chili and sauté
  2. Add onions, sprinkle salt and fry till golden
  3. Add drumsticks, cubed potatoes if using and fry for 2 to 3 mins to remove the raw smell from the drumsticks.
  4. Add chopped tomatoes, some salt and turmeric. Fry till the tomatoes turn soft and pulpy. Do not cover and cook but fry in an open pan, since fried tomato gravy tastes better
  5. Add coriander powder, garlic and red chili powder if using and sauté for a min
  6. Pour water just enough to cover the drumsticks and cook on a medium flame till they are tender. Cooking the drumsticks on the lowest flame yields a tasty curry.
