METHOD:

1.Clean drumstick and then chop it  into long pieces.May be 4 or 6 inches length.

2.In a kadai put the cleaned drumstick add water,turmeric powder and cook.

3. If there is excess water after cooking keep it aside.

4.When it is cool take a single piece and by using a spoon or knife remove pulp.

5.Mash it slightly.

6.Grind coconut,green chillies,jeera and garlic pods.

7.In a kadai put 2 tablespoon oil, then add mustard seeds and urad dhal after splutterring add curry leaves.

8.Put  the drumstick pulp add salt and boil for few minutes.

9.Now add coconut paste to it and boil for few minutes.

Now tasty stew or kootu is ready.This is a very healthy dish.

This goes well with puli kulazhambu.Removing  pulp  while cooking lessens time while eating.My entire family likes this very much.

How about you.?

  1. Kumari, u r recipe seems yum, but I cannot try now since I don’t get drumstick in shillong.However the recipe reminds me so much of an other variation that my mom used to make earlier… she used to steam the cut drumstick pieces n then scoop out the fleshy parts. Then she would season oil with mustard seeds, curry leaves, asofoetida, then frying chopped onion, tomato, tamarind paste, red chilying powder along with the drumstick mash, n then finally garnish with grated coconut. Sometimes if drumstick is less, then she would chopped brinjal to be sautéed along with onion n tomato.
