Drumstick Fry


5-6 drumsticks

2 onions, chopped

1 tablespoon besan (chickpea flour)

1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

2 teaspoon chilly powder

1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds

2 sprigs curry leaves

1/2 teaspoon jaggery

1 lemon-sized tamarind

2 tablespoon oil

Salt to taste


Cut the drumsticks into 2 inch long pieces. Cook with salt and little water until they are just tender and not overcooked.

Soak the tamarind in water for 5 minutes and extract the tamarind pulp. Add besan, turmeric powder, chilly powder, jaggery, and salt to the tamarind pulp and make a thick paste. Now apply this paste to the drumstick pieces and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and curry leaves. When the mustard seeds start to crackle, add the chopped onion and fry until it gets brown. Now add the drumstick pieces and fry on a slow flame for a few more minutes.
