If you love to chew drumsticks this post is for you :)
Drumsticks are one of the important ingredients in south indian cooking I dont the reason though but it had high medical benefits and easily available thruout south india and orrisa too.
I love to chew it. And it gives a unique flavor when added to any kind of curry. Now this is complete drumstick as such as a dish presented here. I dont know how many of you here like it or no but its always good to have a handy quicky recipe so here I go
This is the most simplest recipe which can be prepared in jiffy as a side dish for lunch menu along with rice.
Its my fav and had drumsticks lying in my fridge for long time, I dint allow my mom to make regular, I wanted to make this Finally after long time I guess more than 2yrs now I tot of making this, and also to share with you guys :) My mom used to make this all of a sudden and we liked it. I dont know where she got this from. But by chance I happened to learn from her once, things happened that as soon as this dish appeared in my family it got disappeared too. It was lost all of a sudden and we all forgot abt it. Today I brought this recipe to life again lolzz.
2-3 whole Drumsticks cut into small pieces aprox 1" or lil more
One small onion
2 slit green chillies
Oil - 1-2 tsp
Salt to taste
Water as per needed
Isnt it economical?
- Scrape of the hard skin of drumsticks and cut into equal size
- In a pan take just 1-2 tsp of oil allow it to heat. Add in chopped onions & green chilies saute till lil soft takes 2 mins in high heat.
- Add in drumsticks, salt & water 1/2 cup. close the lid and cook in simmer till soft yet firm in texture.
- Once this is done and you still find water just high up the flame and stirr around without breaking the drumsticks so that the water evaporates
- Serve with rice / roti as side dish
- keep stirring in between, even though it wont burn coz we r cooking in low heat, but have an eye on water, you can always add lil lil water at time to make sure it is cooked well.
- Dont Add much salt, thinking you are adding water as we dry up water at end part it might become too salty. so just add 1/4th tsp for safety
- Dont allow it to cook too soft, you might land up breaking the pieces and it might become like some chutney with pricky edges lol
